Pid file '/run/tor/tor.pid' does not exist.

Hello! I’ll lead post with the fact that I am using 16.0.6.9-testers-only as, to my knowledge, the current stable build of derivative maker is bugged for physical isolation. If anyone knows a build that currently works for physical isolation, I’d be grateful to know.

I was able to successfully build derivative-maker, but when I run:
$ sudo setup-dist
tor fails to start.

Debugging information is as follows:

Start Log

Debugging Information:

Pid file’/run/tor/tor.pid’ does not exist.

output of ‘sudo /bin/systemctl --no-pager --no-block status tor@default’:

(BTW, I did type this out because it was easier to do that at the time. I assume I made no mistakes, but figured it would be best to make that known. I also obscured some pointless information (time and date))

I also ran:
$ ls -l /var/run/tor
result:
total 0

As well as:
$ ls -l /var/run/tor.pid
result:
ls: cannot access ‘/var/run/tor/tor.pid’: No such file or directory

I’ve also rebooted the machine, but the result remains (roughly) the same.

Thank you for your time.
