Does SquidGuard have a dependancy on Squid?
Does squidGuard (I'm using package version 1.16.4) have a dependancy on an installed and configured Squid (package 0.4.42)?
I'm working on a fresh install on a recycled Xeon server and I can't get sG to start, which is an old story I know.
Yes, squidguard requires squid. If you only want blocking, perhaps pfBlockerNG is a better fit.
