I upgraded to dbus 0.35.2-1 and it seems to just disappear.
what makes you say its disappering?
ls /var/run/daemons shows it not there?
can you provide more info?
I first noticed because hal was dead. Then, looking at the hal messages, it was a problem with dbus. With dbus 0.34-1:
ps -ef | grep dbus nobody 5822 1 0 18:24 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
With dbus 0.35.2-1 I see nothing. Looking through var/log I cannot find any dbus messages. The process (looking at /var/run/dbus.pid) is just not there.
I was looking through the man pages and I see the problem might be /etc/dbus-1/system.conf in the new version specifies the non-existant messagebus user. I will try adding that or changing back to nobody.
I added a user 'messagebus' and now dbus is working again.
Thanks, I also had this problem since yesterday but was to sleepy to resolve it...
Microshaft delenda est
I posted a bug but it seems I was trigger happy. Changing the /etc/dbus-1/system.conf file is the way to go...
Task closed (Fixed: Seems choosing dbus user is now possible from configure )
