Well, actually, there is. After I first installed privoxy, I got errors
saying privoxy could not access the log file. I checked the file
permissions and found root:root. Since privoxy runs as privoxy, I
changed the ownership of the logfile to privoxy. Then after a very
short interval I started getting a different privoxy error slightly farther
along the boot sequence and investigating, found a new problem with selinux,
at which point I stopped trying to figure out what was wrong.
