Set the Tor Package Repository on Devuan

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to install the Tor Service on my Devuan ( fork of Debian without systemd)

So I’m following this guide tor-deb-repo

I’m at the point 2, to add the repo url in:

and add those two lines:

deb     [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/tor-archive-keyring.gpg] tor-experimental-<DISTRIBUTION> main
   deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/tor-archive-keyring.gpg] tor-experimental-<DISTRIBUTION> main

no problem so far, BUT I have to change <DISTRIBUTION> to the name of mine

I’ve tried Devuan and 11.1 but it’s not working… as expected…

Any ideas ?

What the cat /etc/debian_version or lsb_release -c commands show, with priority on the progenitor. Most likely it will be bullseye, testing or sid.
But I’m not sure if you can install it. tor from this repository has libsystemd0 as a dependency. There might be some placeholder in Devuan though. You can install from the repository of your distribution.

Hi @meonriox ,
lsb_release -c give : chimaera
cat /etc/debian_version give : 11.1

I will check the repo of my distribution thanks.


Thank you, I’ve installed it trough the devuan repo.
But as I’m doing a lot of test next iteration I will try with bullseye (Thanks !)
