Hi, I've followed instructions of the book "AsteriskFutureOf TelephonySecEdit" on page 295 onwards and get an error when running service asterisk start. The error is: cat: /var/run/asterisk.pid: No such file or directory . I can run aserisk fine from the non-root user. Please help

[root@messaging run]# /etc/init.d/asterisk restart
Shutting down asterisk:                                    [FAILED]
Starting asterisk:                                         [  OK  ]
[root@messaging run]# Asterisk ended with exit status 1
Asterisk died with code 1.
