dbus move breaks wifi

Hi All,

I recently did an update (pacman -Syu) and it seems to have broken wireless on the laptop. It appears to be due to a move of the dbus executable and was wondering if anyone had any advice? Any help would be greatly appriciated

The result of trying to run wicd-client:

machine# wicd-client
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/gtk/wicd-client.py", line 63, in <module>
    from wicd import dbusmanager

    DBUS_MANAGER = DBusManager()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/wicd/dbusmanager.py", line 57, in __init__
    self._bus = dbus.SystemBus()

Re: dbus move breaks wifi

Someone posted about this earlier, the problem was that they were still booting with initscripts instead of systemd. Have you done the conversion?

Re: dbus move breaks wifi

Thanks Scimmia, after reading your reply I read a bit further and it seems that after doing 'pacman -Syu systemd-sysvcompat', it converts everything and everything seems fine.
