Question Alpine Linux Grsecurity Tor Slimjet question

I am using Alpine linux distro and trying to run the tor browser bundle


Thing is, I have to execute start-tor-browser script, so in terminal I put command:


Nothing happens, the browser wont start cause Alpine Linux is using Trusted path execution, grsec.

Now if I put command, and enter my password:

sudo /home/alex/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/start-tor-browser

The browser starts without problem but the script is not suppose to be run as root or with root privileges, I think that running it with sudo is not secure at all and is not recommended.

The same goes for this other browser, I have to execute flashpeak-slimjet script


Is there anyway I can run the scripts without using sudo?
Or do I have to disable trusted path execution option in the kernel? If yes, how can I do that?
Or is imposible to run this 2 browsers in Alpine Linux distro?

I hate to be that guy, but is there a reason you're asking this in a BSD based forum?
You would be better off asking in a Linux forum--I don't know if alpine linux has one, or if it's possibly very quiet, but there's always the very busy linuxquestions.org which has a lot of people using a lot of different system.

They have one: http://forum.alpinelinux.org/forum. It is not busy, but not dead either. They also have mailing lists: http://alpinelinux.org/community/.

grsecurity is a set of patches for the Linux kernel with an emphasis on enhancing security.
Since this is specialised software for Linux, I agree with scottro. You are more likely to find people familiar with it on Linux fora. linuxquestions.org would be a good place to start.
