After update to 2.4.2, I cannot start openvpn:

systemd[1]: Starting OpenVPN tunneling daemon instance using
openvpn[4543]: Options error: --writepid fails with '/run/openvpn/':
No such file or directory
openvpn[4543]: Options error: Please correct these errors.

/run/openvpn/ is not created. I guess due to move of tmpfiles.d from
/usr/lib to /usr/lib64. Why was it moved? Has anybody tested the package at
all? If so, why am I seeing the error and you don't?

Manually creating the dir makes it work again.

I am not sure why is /run/openvpn isnt created for you.

linux-jkp2:~ # grep ^NAME /etc/os-release
NAME="openSUSE Tumbleweed"
linux-jkp2:~ # rpm -qf /run/openvpn/

openvpn shipping their own tmpfiles.d in /usr/lib64 so I moved it there.
I am going to create a new SR with a link in /usr/lib
