Anybody have any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Starting with the minimal config file that comes with the ebuild gives these results:
Code:
 # /etc/init.d/tor start
 * Caching service dependencies ...                                       [ ok ]
 * Starting tor ...
 * start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/bin/tor'
 * Failed to start tor                                                    [ !! ]
 * ERROR: tor failed to start


Code:

Overlooked this message ? ;)
Try this too:

I get the start-stop-daemon error whether or not I'm using a torrc file that generates those messages about parsing. And checkconfig doesn't do anything. Downgrading tor and booting into a different kernel doesn't seem to make a difference either.

You could try enable debug-logging in the torrc.

Same version works fine here:

And to reiterate, I know that Tor is complaining about the torrc file being screwed up but switching it out with the minimal torrc still causes Tor to die.

Here's the debug output with a minimal torrc (without the complaints about parsing the file written to stdout). It still seems to complain about being unable to parse the torrc file, in the debug output.

You've tried recreating the torrc-file(s)?
As toralf pointed out this
Code:
Aug 02 13:31:21.000 [warn] Error while parsing configuration: Excess data after quoted string
doesn't look good and might be the cause of this
Code:
Aug 02 13:31:21.000 [err] set_options(): Bug: Acting on config options left us in a broken state. Dying. (on Tor 0.3.0.8 802d30d9b71a6d54)


What happens if you use the provided torrc.sample? (maybe with Log debug set to get more output)

One thing you should check and be careful on, is the non-shown characters that may be at the end of the lines (like spaces and tabs and others).
This can also be a factor on the editor you are using to save the file, as it may be be adding (CR and LF at end of the lines or something). I know I tested the default/basic file and tor started up fine, even with the debug statement in it; but I used vim and not some GUI text/word editor.

I don't think that I've ever used anything except for Vim to edit config files. Vim is too damned good.

What happens if you use the provided torrc.sample? (maybe with Log debug set to get more output)

Exact same thing.

A couple things to help narrow it down, is to first check the /etc/tor/torrc-defaults file and make sure there isn't anything strange in that file.

The other thing you could do, is when you try running tor, is try running it yourself (instead of starting it's service) and use the -f option and specify the config file.
My thinking on this is that the service is possibly reading a different config file than we are expecting. By manually specifying the config file, we force it to use a specific one.

https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
According to tor's manual online, it looks for a config file in the config for the system (i.e. /etc/tor/) and also in the user's home directory.
It also references the torrc-defaults file for option that wasn't set in the config file.

The logs seem to indicate that it's reading /etc/tor/torrc. I do not have any /etc/tor/torrc-defaults file though.

Code:
ls
torrc  torrcold  torrc.sample  torsocks.conf


As for running tor without its service, do you mean just calling it from the command line instead of its initscript? Because I've tried both, to the exact same effect.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but the same issue has arisen again with Tor-0.3.5.8. No idea how it got resolved last time (I think that it was solved through an update).

I've checked out the config files in vim (which is the only text editor that I really use) and there are no hidden carriage returns or weird characters lurking in the files that I can find. I've tried starting Tor up with the torrc file that comes with the package, I've tried a minimal config and I've tried running Tor without calling it through rc-service or the init script. Is there maybe some application or library that Tor depends on to parse the config files that's gotten screwed up? There don't seem to be any bug reports that I can find that sound like my issue, so I'm inclined to think that it's just me misconfiguring my system somehow. Using the checkconfig option with the init script returns nothing.

Code:
# /etc/init.d/tor start


Code:

/etc/torrc
Code:
## Configuration file for a typical Tor user
## Last updated 16 July 2009 for Tor 0.2.2.1-alpha.
## (May or may not work for much older or much newer versions of Tor.)
##
## Lines that begin with "## " try to explain what's going on. Lines
## that begin with just "#" are disabled commands: you can enable them
## by removing the "#" symbol.
##
## See 'man tor', or https://www.torproject.org/tor-manual.html,
## for more options you can use in this file.
##
## Tor will look for this file in various places based on your platform:
## https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#torrc

## Default username and group the server will run as
User tor

PIDFile /var/run/tor/tor.pid

## Replace this with "SocksPort 0" if you plan to run Tor only as a
## relay, and not make any local application connections yourself.
SocksPort 9050 # what port to open for local application connections
#SocksListenAddress 127.0.0.1 # accept connections only from localhost
#SocksListenAddress 192.168.0.1:9100 # listen on this IP:port also

## Entry policies to allow/deny SOCKS requests based on IP address.
## First entry that matches wins. If no SocksPolicy is set, we accept
## all (and only) requests from SocksListenAddress.
#SocksPolicy accept 192.168.0.0/16
#SocksPolicy reject *

## Logs go to stdout at level "notice" unless redirected by something
## else, like one of the below lines. You can have as many Log lines as
## you want.
##
## We advise using "notice" in most cases, since anything more verbose
## may provide sensitive information to an attacker who obtains the logs.
##
## Send all messages of level 'notice' or higher to /var/lib/log/tor/notices.log
#Log notice file /var/lib/log/tor/notices.log
## Send every possible message to /var/lib/log/tor/debug.log
#Log debug file /var/lib/log/tor/debug.log
## Use the system log instead of Tor's logfiles
#Log notice syslog
## To send all messages to stderr:
#Log debug stderr
#Log notice syslog
Log debug file /var/log/tor/debug.log
Log notice stdout
Log notice file /var/log/tor/tor.log
Log warn file /var/log/tor/tor.log

## Uncomment this to start the process in the background... or use
## --runasdaemon 1 on the command line. This is ignored on Windows;
## see the FAQ entry if you want Tor to run as an NT service.
#RunAsDaemon 1

## The directory for keeping all the keys/etc. By default, we store
## things in $HOME/.tor on Unix, and in Application Data\tor on Windows.
#DataDirectory /var/lib/lib/tor
DataDirectory   /var/lib/tor/data

## The port on which Tor will listen for local connections from Tor
## controller applications, as documented in control-spec.txt.
ControlPort 9051
## If you enable the controlport, be sure to enable one of these
## authentication methods, to prevent attackers from accessing it.
HashedControlPassword 16:962453E8EB1AC8D7606AB3E761F55770A0E4EAC088F1BF77611DD090D3
#CookieAuthentication 1

############### This section is just for location-hidden services ###

## Once you have configured a hidden service, you can look at the
## contents of the file ".../hidden_service/hostname" for the address
## to tell people.
##
## HiddenServicePort x y:z says to redirect requests on port x to the
## address y:z.

#HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/lib/tor/hidden_service/
#HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:80

#HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/lib/tor/other_hidden_service/
#HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:80
#HiddenServicePort 22 127.0.0.1:22

################ This section is just for relays #####################
#
## See https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-relay for details.

## Required: what port to advertise for incoming Tor connections.
ORPort 9001
## If you want to listen on a port other than the one advertised
## in ORPort (e.g. to advertise 443 but bind to 9090), uncomment the
## line below too. You'll need to do ipchains or other port forwarding
## yourself to make this work.
#ORListenAddress 0.0.0.0:9090

## A handle for your relay, so people don't have to refer to it by key.
Nickname sinepreggin

## The IP address or full DNS name for your relay. Leave commented out
## and Tor will guess.
#Address noname.example.com

## Define these to limit how much relayed traffic you will allow. Your
## own traffic is still unthrottled. Note that RelayBandwidthRate must
## be at least 20 KB.
#RelayBandwidthRate 100 KB  # Throttle traffic to 100KB/s (800Kbps)
#RelayBandwidthBurst 200 KB # But allow bursts up to 200KB/s (1600Kbps)

## Use these to restrict the maximum traffic per day, week, or month.
## Note that this threshold applies to sent _and_ to received bytes,
## not to their sum: Setting "4 GB" may allow up to 8 GB
## total before hibernating.
##
## Set a maximum of 4 gigabytes each way per period.
#AccountingMax 4 GB
## Each period starts daily at midnight (AccountingMax is per day)
#AccountingStart day 00:00
## Each period starts on the 3rd of the month at 15:00 (AccountingMax
## is per month)
#AccountingStart month 3 15:00

## Contact info to be published in the directory, so we can contact you
## if your relay is misconfigured or something else goes wrong. Google
## indexes this, so spammers might also collect it.
#ContactInfo Random Person <nobody AT example dot com>
## You might also include your PGP or GPG fingerprint if you have one:
#ContactInfo 1234D/FFFFFFFF Random Person <nobody AT example dot com>

## Uncomment this to mirror directory information for others. Please do
## if you have enough bandwidth.
DirPort 9030 # what port to advertise for directory connections
## If you want to listen on a port other than the one advertised
## in DirPort (e.g. to advertise 80 but bind to 9091), uncomment the line
## below too. You'll need to do ipchains or other port forwarding yourself
## to make this work.
#DirListenAddress 0.0.0.0:9091
## Uncomment to return an arbitrary blob of html on your DirPort. Now you
## can explain what Tor is if anybody wonders why your IP address is
## contacting them. See contrib/tor-exit-notice.html in Tor's source
## distribution for a sample.
#DirPortFrontPage /etc/tor/tor-exit-notice.html

## Uncomment this if you run more than one Tor relay, and add the identity
## key fingerprint of each Tor relay you control, even if they're on
## different networks. You declare it here so Tor clients can avoid
## using more than one of your relays in a single circuit. See
## https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#MultipleServers
#MyFamily $keyid,$keyid,...

## A comma-separated list of exit policies. They're considered first
## to last, and the first match wins. If you want to _replace_
## the default exit policy, end this with either a reject *:* or an
## accept *:*. Otherwise, you're _augmenting_ (prepending to) the
## default exit policy. Leave commented to just use the default, which is
## described in the man page or at
## https://www.torproject.org/documentation.html
##
## Look at https://www.torproject.org/faq-abuse.html#TypicalAbuses
## for issues you might encounter if you use the default exit policy.
##
## If certain IPs and ports are blocked externally, e.g. by your firewall,
## you should update your exit policy to reflect this -- otherwise Tor
## users will be told that those destinations are down.
##
#ExitPolicy accept *:6660-6667,reject *:* # allow irc ports but no more
#ExitPolicy accept *:119 # accept nntp as well as default exit policy
#ExitPolicy reject *:* # no exits allowed
#
## Bridge relays (or "bridges") are Tor relays that aren't listed in the
## main directory. Since there is no complete public list of them, even if an
## ISP is filtering connections to all the known Tor relays, they probably
## won't be able to block all the bridges. Also, websites won't treat you
## differently because they won't know you're running Tor. If you can
## be a real relay, please do; but if not, be a bridge!
#BridgeRelay 1
