I am trying to build torbrowser on a Linux (kali) machine running on Raspberry Pi4 (ARMv8=aarch64) but cannot figure out how. I cannot use normal tor (the one installed with sudo apt install tor or built from source). I tried to google around and looked at several posts here but cannot find a way to do it. Moreover, tor-browser-build now uses rbm that makes it even more difficult to work around

Any help is really appreciated!

    Is there a particular reason to do it on Kali?

  • @AdminBee not really, it's just the OS I had in the machine, but it won't make any difference to use debian or anything else on aarch64

    Under these circumstances I would recommend not to use Kali, since (as you might know) that distribution is actually not meant as a desktop or development OS (let alone a base for an embedded system), but rather a specialized tool for security testers, and very user-unfriendly.

    sure, I can switch to debian, but I would have the same problem as the point is the aarch64 not the OS

  • Please let me know if you have any luck. I'm in a similar position trying to build IceCat for the aarch64 Raspberry Pi OS. Though, for me, I do not know of any issues with building, my problem is more not yet knowing how to build.
