messagebus start fails
« on: June 15, 2010, 07:16:54 pm »

New install of VL-6-STD.

On booting setting up message bus fails.

/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus start
Starting system message bus:  /usr/bin/dbus-uuidgen --ensure ; /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
Failed to start message bus: Element <syslog> not allowed inside <busconfig> in configuration file

How to correct?

Thanks!

Nothing doing.

/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus reload
Reloading system message bus configuration...
dbus-daemon: no process killed

/etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus restart
Starting system message bus:  /usr/bin/dbus-uuidgen --ensure ; /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
Failed to start message bus: Element <syslog> not allowed inside <busconfig> in configuration file

Is this the reason xmessage does not work properly? It takes a long time to come up
and desplays the following error:

xmessage --display koko
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

Have you made any changes to /etc/dbus-1/system.conf ?
or maybe /etc/dbus-1/session.conf?

If you did, please post the modified file

I now removed dbus and installed it again and moving the system/session.conf.new
to *.conf and messagebus is now starting properly.

rc.hald is starting now as well w/o delay on booting.

Remains the problem with xmessage.
