Upon installation, the directory /var/run/polipo is not created preventing polipo from starting without creating it by hand, or rebooting the system.
Without the directory, the daemon do not start, with a message "canot create pid file", and yet, systemd do not detect that the server didn't start.
Can you let me know if you installed and tried to run polipo before a system reboot? If so, can you try manually removing /var/run/polipo (after stopping it) and then reboot and let me know if the directory is created correctly?
I installed polipo, and wanted to use it right away.
And if i remove the directory, and reboot, it got correctly recreated.
