How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

original title: How to install TorBrowser in Ascii? From Stretch backports or?
title as of 2017-07-10 17:53 UT: How to install TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT from Stretch backports! [PARTLY SOLVED]
[PARTLY SOLVED]
---
I searched but replacing "devuan" (with the quotes) for "debian" returns no results. Instead, after this search (in duckduckgo.com of course):

debian apt-get install torbrowser-launcher

I used what it gave me:
https://wiki.debian.org/TorBrowser
which, on the fact that Ascii is based on Stretch
(
up until recently that has become a little more complicated with the fact that the Testing in Debian is now Buster, see:
AMPROLLA GLITCH: ISSUE SOLVED -- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/2 … ad.en.html
)
but I thought the tip on wiki.debian.org might still apply, and it reads:apt-get updat

1. If not already done add the Backport repository to your sources.list.

which I did. Like this:
# cat >> /etc/apt/sources.list

# Backports repository
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free

And I ran:
# apt-get update

But:
# apt-get install torbrowser-launcher -t stretch-backports

Reading package lists...
E: The value 'stretch-backports' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

I'm not completely sure. And I'll try and exercize patience for up to one half hour, to see if I get any suggestions, and then I'll try and just hit Enter to install all those listed above...

BTW, my Ascii is functioning just fine (well, maybe just a couple of glitches...). I update this one (which is the clone the following) from my Air-Gapped master Ascii Devuan, as per:
Air-Gapped Devuan Install, Tentative
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=746

That method works without any issues, so far.

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

While I'm waiting for any more information, I found:
..is Devuan BTS down? reportbug torbrowser-launcher likely failed for me...
https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/2 … 8a.en.html

and that is the sole mention of torbrowser at this time in the Lurker search:
https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/search/20 … er.en.html
well, there is also the
heads 0.3 released!
https://lists.dyne.org/lurker/message/2 … 11.en.html
but it's only a short mention of the same package...

However I don't see there are any ascii-backports, are there? There are jessie-backports, but I'm on Ascii.

Cheers!

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

And now I have to wait at least a little bit longer, because I asked about this also at:

ascii-backports? for torbrowser-launcher install WAS: heads 0.3 released!

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

It says (manually copying):

SIGNATURE VERIFICATION FAILED!

You might be under attack, or there might just be a networking problem. Click Start try the download again.

-----------                             -------------
| Start   |                             | Cancel    |
-----------                             -------------

And restarting, all the 60-70MB, but... (one probably last time, for now):

the same notice in the GTK (or whatever, no that's not QT) little window, appears.

Can there be a manual way to download it?

Because I noticed it wrote:

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

It's not that the download is bad. Nope!

It's something to do with not having verified the good download, for some reason.

Because, in the first place, I didn't have the:

$ gpg --recv-key D1483FA6C3C07136
gpg: key 4E2C6E8793298290: public key "Tor Browser Developers (signing key) <torbrowser@torproject.org>" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1
$

( because I did just a while ago, but after  the previous post. So now I do have that key listed.

And also:

$ gpg --verify tor-browser-linux64-7.0.1_en-US.tar.xz.asc tor-browser-linux64-7.0.1_en-US.tar.xz
gpg: Signature made Mon 12 Jun 2017 17:37:03 UTC
gpg:                using RSA key D1483FA6C3C07136
gpg: Good signature from "Tor Browser Developers (signing key) <torbrowser@torproject.org>" [unknown]
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: EF6E 286D DA85 EA2A 4BA7  DE68 4E2C 6E87 9329 8290
     Subkey fingerprint: A430 0A6B C93C 0877 A445  1486 D148 3FA6 C3C0 7136

it verified correctly.

However, launching tor-browser like I described in the previous post shows just the same message, and Tor doesn't start...

On top of that... the small GTK (probably) window keeps appearing... and even after:

The window "Tor Browser" does not seem to be responding. Do you want to force it to exit by sending the kill signal?

                      -----------       -----------------
                      | Cancel   |       | End Process   |
                      -----------       -----------------

any of that, it's just unkillable...

Any more tries/some-not-too-expert-hacking can be done here?

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

Sorry, I'm in a bit of a hurry, so I didn't read it all. Here's what we have in devuan. You should not use debian repositories to pull packages. You could get some unexpected surprises, and I'm talking about the unpleasant kind.

$ apt-cache policy torbrowser-launcher 
torbrowser-launcher:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.1.9-1+deb8u3
  Version table:
     0.2.7-2 0
        100 http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ ceres/contrib amd64 Packages
     0.2.6-2~bpo8+1 0
        200 http://packages.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-backports/contrib amd64 Packages
     0.1.9-1+deb8u3 0
        500 http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie/contrib amd64 Packages

If you're in jessie and want the version from backports,

apt-get -t jessie-backports install torbrowser-launcher

I don't know why it's not in ascii. I would either try the one from jessie-backports or temporarily add ceres sources and pull it from there. More likely, I would just go to the tor site, download the latest version and unpack it in my home directory.

Thanks again, fsmithred!

If you're in jessie and want the version from backports,

Nope. Ascii it is. In the topic title as well.

I don't know why it's not in ascii. I would either try the one from jessie-backports or temporarily add ceres sources and pull it from there. More likely, I would just go to the tor site, download the latest version and unpack it in my home directory.

I see... And, let's see if som non-expert hacking can help here...
I'll try and uninstall the Debian torbrowser-launcher and manually, from backup of what:

/var/cache/

and

/var/lib/apt/

cache previously were, and which I kept kind of snapshotting...
From the backups I'll try and revert the state of my system to prior to what it was when I added the stretch-backports to it...
I'm talking about backups as I wrote about, and used for
Air-Gapped Devuan Install, Tentative
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=746
After all, I had recovered, previously, it looks to me successfully, from having had updated my Jessie with stretch... before I figured out that manual Air-Gapped method...

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

Allow me to point the reader again towards right at the start of that Air-Gapped Devuan Install, because I started that topic with taking (I think the right word here is snapshot) snapshots of /var/cache/ and /var/lib/apt.

And I used those snapshots to Air-Gap install my Devuan in my master.

I kept taking such snapshot at every new update today, and by simply comparing those snapshots, along with removing the potentially offending Debian packages (important!), I think I will be able to revert the status that Mr Apt sees and works with in such way as to have a workable system again.

Because the Debian torbrowser-launcher that I installed a few hours ago does appear to be a sore in my system!

So, if I look up these two, one way and the other, here:

then I believe it's pretty obvious I got the right /var/lib/apt/ snapshot that I want to revert to in the archive of one var_lib_apt_170630_0717_gdOv.tar (var_lib_apt_170630_0717_gdO when it is untar'd)!
So I think I, after uninstalling the packages that got installed, all the packages that got installed between those two points in time. And after fixing also the /var/cache, if need be... [So I think] that I will have a consistent system again, and without those unhappy backports...

But does /var/cache need fixing? Let's see:

Ah, and also important is: I must revert the /etc/apt/ to how it was previous to this potentially costly experiment...

Let's see if I will reclaim my system or be left in un unworkable system... Give me more time.

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

For the /etc/apt to be back as previously, it only took removing the ... debian.org/debian jessie-backports ... entry previously introduced. That was all for that part.

This is from my apt-get logs (from some almost five hours ago now...):

# cat LOG_/apt-get_torbrowser-launcher_170630_1050_gdOv.log  | grep -A7 'NEW packages will be installed'
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  python-attr python-cffi-backend python-constantly python-cryptography
  python-enum34 python-idna python-incremental python-ipaddress python-lzma
  python-openssl python-parsley python-psutil python-pyasn1
  python-pyasn1-modules python-service-identity python-setuptools
  python-twisted python-twisted-bin python-twisted-core python-txsocksx
  python-zope.interface torbrowser-launcher wmctrl
0 upgraded, 23 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.

And I'll make a listing to uninstall those packages (without the first and last line of the above. In one go:

# apt-get remove \
  python-attr python-cffi-backend python-constantly python-cryptography \
  python-enum34 python-idna python-incremental python-ipaddress python-lzma \
  python-openssl python-parsley python-psutil python-pyasn1 \
  python-pyasn1-modules python-service-identity python-setuptools \
  python-twisted python-twisted-bin python-twisted-core python-txsocksx \
  python-zope.interface torbrowser-launcher wmctrl \
|& tee LOG_/apt-get_torbrowser-launcher_$(date +%y%m%d_%H%M)_$(hostname).log

And:

Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  python-attr python-cffi-backend python-constantly python-cryptography
  python-enum34 python-idna python-incremental python-ipaddress python-lzma
  python-openssl python-parsley python-psutil python-pyasn1

Uninstalled... But the /var/cache/ and /var/lib/apt/ may not be in good condition just for that...

I'll compare them with the known good points from my previous post. I will first take another snapshot of each of the two.

And as far as the state of those two /var/ directories, I tested it on the snapshots (which I'm not reporting now), but here's my rsyncing of them now:

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

So, it this, yes it must be, how jessie-backports are added:
Devuan stable and Skylake (and Kaby Lake?) integrated GPU - backports
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=542

So I'll add:

...

# echo 'deb http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-backports main contrib non-free' \

exactly that line, and with that echo command to what will be my newly created file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.

And I'll do the rest as reads there, and report back. Be it success or failure. I promise. I don't hide things...

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

But give me more time if it works... So I can enjoy Tor a little, first. You, know, I have to shut down Palemoon all the way, else it's bad...

BTW, this is what I got:

# apt-cache policy torbrowser-launcher

torbrowser-launcher:
  Installed: 0.2.6-2~bpo8+1
  Candidate: 0.2.6-2~bpo8+1

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

Nope! And it's somewhat similar symptoms.

The download can manually be verified to be correct, but somehow the launcher can't get it that it verifies correctly. Again it downloads good tar.gz, but can't understand that it is good:

mr@gdOv:~/.cache/torbrowser/download$ gpg --verify tor-browser-linux64-7.0.1_en-US.tar.xz.asc tor-browser-linux64-7.0.1_en-US.tar.xz
gpg: Signature made Mon 12 Jun 2017 17:37:03 UTC
gpg:                using RSA key D1483FA6C3C07136
gpg: Good signature from "Tor Browser Developers (signing key) <torbrowser@torproject.org>" [unknown]
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: EF6E 286D DA85 EA2A 4BA7  DE68 4E2C 6E87 9329 8290

mr@gdOv:~/.cache/torbrowser/download$

And that's real paste. That part is similar to already seen at:
< this same topic >
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=2701#p2701

However, the GTK window, while it shows similar enscripts, can be at least Ctrl-C killed once I bring it to the foreground (the command torbrowser-launcher) in it's terminal.

What to try next... I think I will even reboot the machine, in case it's some remnant in cache from the previous wrong install...

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

Why not just use the portable TorBrowser for GNU/Linux available here?

I tested it on Devuan Jessie and it works fine. It should run on Devuan ASCII just as well.

In other words, what I already have downloaded a few (too many) times and for some reason could not be verified even though it was correct download...
...That is already useable as is...
Aaahhh... How imaginative I am.
But thanks! GNUser for filling up for my unimaginativeness... In case that will work...
...
Let me see...

Ah, I forgot I have to close this Palemoon browser... And see if it will work... May be (actually I hope to be) back to complete this post... (but maybe not in a minute, engaged with other issues).

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

It's better to make a new post (than as I suggested, updating the previous).

I use:

$ uname -r
4.9.27-unofficial+grsec170512-22

And similar to what is read in this topic:

Can't launch hardend browser with Grsecurity
https://tor.stackexchange.com/questions … grsecurity
( asked Nov 21 '16 at 21:53 )

IOW (but these are years old):
PaX: Max. per-task virtual memory too small for llvm asan and gcc-4.8 asan
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=458706

The fix had been proposed (years old):
PaX and Clang sanitizers, or some random notes on the crossbreeding of adders and hedgehogs
http://endl.ch/clang-sanitizers-with-pax

but it is unclear if anything came out of it.

I wrote that it was "similar to what is read" in that topic. But instead, I only see:

Launching './Browser/start-tor-browser --detach'...

and I don't get any useful info in the logs either.

But no message about memory failure, or segmentation or abort or similar appears in my logs... Nothing useful whatsoever. Just silent failure. But that could be a cosmetic not-show. I've seen such behavior...

But I can easily use Tor with:

$ uname -r
4.9.0-3-amd64

(I just tested it)... Except, I don't trust non-grsec kernels...

I'll try, soon, or later (I have other issues as well that are at some moments of disheartenment shattering my nerves at this time), I'll try and see if corsac's grsec kernel (the official grsec kernels in Debian/Devuan below are his work)
(
which I finally discovered was an apt-get install away for me --my jolly imaginativeness!-- ...

# apt-cache search grsec
gradm2 - Administration program for the grsecurity2 RBAC based ACL system
linux-grsec-source-4.9 - Linux kernel source for version 4.9 with Debian patches
linux-grsec-support-4.9.0-2 - Support files for Linux 4.9
linux-headers-4.9.0-2-common-grsec - Common header files for Linux 4.9.0-2-grsec
linux-headers-4.9.0-2-grsec-amd64 - Header files for Linux 4.9.0-2-grsec-amd64
linux-image-4.9.0-2-grsec-amd64 - Linux 4.9 for 64-bit PCs, Grsecurity protection
linux-grsec-base - Linux image base package, grsec featureset
linux-headers-grsec-amd64 - Header files for Linux amd64 configuration, grsec featureset (meta-package)
linux-image-grsec-amd64 - Linux image meta-package, grsec featureset
linux-image-4.9.27-unofficial+grsec170512-22 - Linux kernel, version 4.9.27-unofficial+grsec170512-22
linux-headers-4.9.27-unofficial+grsec170512-22 - Linux kernel headers for 4.9.27-unofficial+grsec170512-22 on amd64
#

< the bottom ones are what I installed from github minipli repo >
)
I'll try and see if corsac's grsec kernel can deal with torbrowser-launcher...

Tor, well: privacy, is my long term need. Maybe not soon, but I will be back for the solution to this.

See also the timestamps. I just browsed with Tor, a little while ago.

And with:

$ uname -r

Yes I did! But it was close at hand, the doing it, all this time. First, like GNUser suggested, it's just the Tor archive that you need. (And torbrowser-launcher should be reported this issue of false positive with verifying the downloaded Tor archive on Devuan bugs.)

$ ls -ltr .cache/torbrowser/download/

That was at the time you can see.

So, first, just the archive, at this time.

And second, it was just sorting the two binaries with paxctl!

The thing is, paxrat wouldn't work, maybe I need to learn to use it. I know how to use it on normal path binaries, but it wouldn't work on a binary in:

( _cache_torbrowser_download/tor-browser_en-US/ is where I simply untarred what torbrowser-launcher downloaded )
And, IIRC, neither would paxctl. But once I did:

# cp -iav _cache_torbrowser_download/tor-browser_en-US/ /usr/local/bin/

I was then able to convert and modify further the two binaries [color]firefox[/color] and [color]plugin-container[/color].

I was able to do that by running (only one of them I ran paxctl on, at first):

# paxctl -cpm /usr/local/bin/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/firefox

.

That actually got me Tor's Firefox to start! All the way! But the tabs would not reach anywhere... I couldn't connect to anywhere.

And looking into the logs, I saw:

( the paste has been minimally anonymized )

So you see that? That's Tor running under grsec!

But further on I see:

And to the unimaginative Miro (I dealt with these kind of issues over and over, how could I not have remembered... Well, it wasn't so usual, because of the location...)

But anyway, I dealt with by the same recipe (see the timestamps) in the listing further above, it's some 33 minutes later that I converted that other binary:

# paxctl -cpm /usr/local/bin/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/plugin-container

And then, the final thing to do was copy over 

cp -iav /usr/local/bin/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/firefox _cache_torbrowser_download/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/firefox

and accept to overwrite it (but I'm cheating with the order, I had already done that to get those partly successful run as in the log above), and

And this other copy I did do, only after that partly successful run as in the log above:

cp -iav /usr/local/bin/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/plugin-container _cache_torbrowser_download/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/plugin-container

And I can run Tor now. Verification pending, one successful run of a minute or two duration does no count yet, but if I'm not back rather soon, it very likely just works.

Regards!

Re: How2instl TorBrowser in Ascii? NOT frm Stretch bakprts! [PARTLY SOLVED

This isn't completely solved. Only when torbrowser-launcher is fixed, only then can it be regarded as [SOLVED].
And, Admins, I vote for allowing longer titles to topics! smile
