[SOLVED] systemctl: Failed to get D-Bus connection

Fresh install on a brand new laptop using the latest install medium (2012.09.07).

Whenever I try to use the systemctl command I get the following error message:

Failed to get D-Bus connection: No connection to service manager.

Can't enable/disable/start/stop/whatever anything because of this.

Tried appending init=/bin/systemd to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, but all to no avail (and yes, I made sure to regenerate grub.cfg).

Don't really know what logs/info you need, but let me know and I'll post it. I've looked through the logs in /var/log but couldn't even find an error message there.

Edit:
I've also removed quiet from the kernel parameter. Still no errors (not even in journalctl).

Edit2:
Derp. The error stems from systemd not being used. I must have typed the kernel parameter wrong the first time, because going back and trying it again did the trick for me.

Re: [SOLVED] systemctl: Failed to get D-Bus connection

Their problem, from what I can tell, was that they were still booting with sysvinit, possibly due to a typo in the "init=/bin/systemd"

So, if you're getting the same problem, make sure that you're actually booting with systemd.

ps -p 1 -o comm=

Should return "systemd". If not, you're not booing with systemd.
