Hi, I'm just trying out bfilter. I installed it OK on Fedora4, and am trying it out. Just 1 thing, how do I know what it's doing (e.g., what is begin blocked)? If I run bfilter-gui, click on bfilter-gui/log, nothing interesting is shown there.

I've considered adding request logging, but first I have to understand what people really want when they request this feature. For example, if you are concerned about your privacy, you may just want to be able to see recently requested urls. On the other hand, you may want a list of urls that BFilter considers to be ads, possibly to use it in other filtering proxies. Or you want a log to be written to disk, because you use BFilter on a LAN.
So, give me more details of what you want.
BTW, if you compile BFilter --with-debug, you'll have a debugging interface that logs requests among other things. You can see a screenshot here: http://bfilter.sourceforge.net/doc/build-unix.php (scroll to the bottom)
