Description Evan Plumlee 2006-01-13 17:04:16 UTC
dbus fails to start on boot or directly invoked:

# /etc/init.d/dbus start
 * Starting D-BUS system messagebus ...
Failed to start message bus: Failed to bind socket "/var/lib/dbus/system_bus_socket": No such file or directory

# emerge -pv dbus

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Which dbus version is this about? Not really apparent whether you mean 0.60-r3 or 0.23.4-r1.
Comment 2 Evan Plumlee 2006-01-13 17:49:03 UTC
23.4-r1 is currently installed.  Portage downgraded it on my last emerge -uDN world.  Before that, it was 0.60.  I didn't even notice that it emerge was going to upgrade it actually.  It does not matter to me which version is installed.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-13 18:24:17 UTC
Uh eh, you cannot really be switching between those two versions freely and expect things to work. Don't mix stable and unstable packages that depend on dbus and are causing such cycles. If you want to use ~arch dbus version, you need to use ~arch versions of all ebuilds that depend on it.

INVALID bug, closing.
