I’m not sure 100% where to post this since I’m using Whonix inside of Qubes, so I’m also crossposting this into that forum.

I’ve switched over to Whonix 9, and I’ve run into this problem. When I first install it, everything runs fine. As soon as I shutdown and restart at a future time, I lose the ability to connect through tor.

It tells me: “there is no /var/run/tor/”
“starting tor daemon…aa-exec: ERROR: profile ‘system_tor’ does not exist”

I looked around to find any solutions to my problem, and the only thing I could find was an old github comment saying this bug was fixed in whonix 8.
