10.6: Run Privoxy 3.0.16 on Snow Leopard
Authored by: kankei71 on Mar 07, '10 01:10:04AM

Glad to find this how-to. Unfortunately both my attempts to install Privoxy 3.0.16 failed. Installation with MacPorts failed and installation following this how-to gave me this:

[...]
Creating directories, and preparing Privoxy 3.0.16 stable installation
Installing privoxy executable to /usr/local/sbin
install: privoxy: No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 71
mbp:privoxy-3.0.16-stable xxxxxxx$

Why is that?

For info, I'm running Privoxy 3.0.10 on Snow Leopard, installed with the .dmg Mac instaler.

The path /usr/local/sbin and simular under /usr/local are common on other *nixes - but not on OS X. I guess the folder(s) are missing.

10.6: Run Privoxy 3.0.16 on Snow Leopard

Actaully, the hint is missing the 'make' command which makes the privoxy binary.

The build steps should be:

$ autoheader
$ autoconf
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

In an abundance of caution, I used a bit more in the final 'make install' command as well (found at macupdate):

$ sudo make -s install USER=privoxy GROUP=privoxy

Also, the dscl commands need to be run as root.

Now I have privoxy running! hopefully no more ads with audio will wake my girlfriend.

Finally I found a way to install Privoxy 3.0.16 through MacPorts.
Installed and working fine.
