Compiling Tor on CentOS 6.5

$ yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
$ yum install libevent-devel openssl-devel
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

That's it. I actually started writing this when I thought it would be more complicated.

It looks like the RPM for CentOS doesn't work with NTor (the new, faster) handshakes. There's some discussion on tor-relays@ about this here.

CrashPlan doesn't load on Ubuntu 14.04

These instructions from CrashPlan are spot on.

I installed webkit and added a line to run.conf as they described, and everything worked fine.
