tor-browser on armhf / Raspberry Pi 4

Post by MoonKid » Tue Sep 28, 2021 9:15 am

I rund Raspberry Pi OS (Debian buster based; armhf architecture) on a Pi 4.
I want run/install tor-browser here. But it is not possible to build it or run it via box86.

Wine is available from the official Raspberry Pi OS repo.

Code: Select all

$ apt-cache policy wine
wine:
  Installiert:           4.0-2
  Installationskandidat: 4.0-2
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 4.0-2 500
        500 http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster/main armhf Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
I downloaded the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows version of tor-browser. It does not matter which version I use. I got errors and do not understand why.

Code: Select all

$ wine torbrowser-install-10.5.6_en-US.exe
wine: Fehlerhaftes EXE-Format für F:\home\pi\Downloads\torbrowser-install-10.5.6_en-US.exe.

$ wine torbrowser-install-win64-10.5.6_en-US.exe
0009:err:process:replace_process L"F:\\home\\pi\\Downloads\\torbrowser-install-win64-10.5.6_en-US.exe" not supported on this installation (x86 binary)
wine: Fehlerhaftes EXE-Format für F:\home\pi\Downloads\torbrowser-install-win64-10.5.6_en-US.exe.
I accept that it is not easy and maybe impossible to do this. But I would like to understand why.

Sorry I can't help you with your issue, or answer your question of why, but I was curious why you just don't run a native linux tor browser?

For "armhf" (what is Pi 4) there is no "nativ" tor browser.

Ahh, thought that might be the issue. I got my linux tor browser from:

https://archive.torproject.org/tor-pack ... orbrowser/

And they do have versions labeled with arm7-android, but I am not sure if a version like that is usable on a Pi 4. Oh well, hope you find an answer.
