[asterisk-users] On Fedora, kernel update resets /var/run/asterisk owner to root.root

Are you using the Fedora RPMs or are you compiling it yourself?  If
you're compiling it yourself, you'll need to create a file called
/etc/tmpfiles.d/asterisk.conf with this content:

d /run/asterisk 0755 asterisk asterisk

On Fedora /var/run is a symlink to /run, and /run is a tmpfs
partition, which means it gets wiped out every time you reboot.
systemd-tmpfiles uses the files in /etc/tmpfiles.d and
/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d to recreate files/directories at boot time.
