Default issues with "Dbus"

Got myself a copy of OpenBSD 4.8 AMD64 and installed without any problems. But once i installed Gnome things got unstable to say the least.

I keep getting these in /log/messages

"bsd gnome-session[31230]: WARNING: Could not connect to ConsoleKit: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory"

tried deinstalling / reinstalling everything related to DBUS and / or Gnome

tried adding users such as messagebus and systembus

tried followup on approx 25-30 google threads

tried (just to see) manually creating /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket, and that changes error message to "socket operation on non-socket"

tried about everything i can think of except complete reinstall of OBSD from scratch (wich i am severely reluctant to do since it took a great deal of time just to get X running at all)

What is wrong? broken dependencies? broken libs? missing users? bad / wrong user / daemon rights?

You need to start dbus:

Code:
# /etc/rc.d/dbus_daemon start
Then /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket will be created properly:

Code:
# ls -l /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket                                        
srwxrwxrwx  1 root  _dbus  0 Dec 29 12:06 /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket

/etc/rc.d does not even exist

locate says:
bash-4.1# locate rc.d
/home/cvs/src/etc/rc.d
/home/cvs/src/etc/rc.d/rc.subr,v
/home/cvs/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/gas/testsuite/gas/arc/Attic/rrc.d,v
/usr/local/share/gtk-doc/html/orc/orc.devhelp
/usr/local/share/gtk-doc/html/orc/orc.devhelp2
bash-4.1#


an alternative attempt?

bash-4.1# dbus-daemon --system
Failed to start message bus: Failed to bind socket "/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket": No such file or directory
bash-4.1#

That change must've taken place after RELEASE. I'm running CURRENT.

what does "pkg_info -L dbus | grep rc.d" say?

i get no response / output at all from that command:

bash-4.1# pkg_info -L dbus | grep rc.d

then tried

bash-4.1# pkg_info -v -L dbus | grep rc.d

then tried

bash-4.1# pkg_info -vvvvv -L dbus | grep rc.d
bash-4.1#

I really dislike dbus, but, if you're going to run it.. I recommend NOT running it system wide.

You can create ~/.dbus/session.conf, and launch dbus in your .xinitrc file.
Code:
<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD D-Bus Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
 "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd">
<busconfig>
	<type>session</type>
	<keep_umask/>
	<listen>unix:tmpdir=~/.dbus/tmp</listen>
	<policy context="default">
		<allow send_destination="*" eavesdrop="true"/>
		<allow eavesdrop="true"/>
		<allow own="*"/>
		<allow user="zylorx"/>
	</policy>
</busconfig>
I specify a non-default location for the socket, as you can see.

You'll also need something like this in your .xinitrc/.xsession, for example..
exec /usr/local/bin/dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session --config-file=~/.dbus/session.conf /usr/X11R6/bin/cwm

I use cwm and this lets my desktop applications play nicely, most should automatically start a dbus session on their own if it doesn't already exist.

This is just how I start it, preferred instructions are installed as part of the dbus package.. in 4.8-current these are installed in /usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes/:
Code:
To start a session bus instance of dbus-daemon (needed by at least gvfs
aware applications and /usr/local/share/dbus-1/services/*.service),
add the following lines in .xinitrc or .xsession before starting the
window manager (see dbus-launch(1) for more info) -- note that some
session managers, e.g. gnome-session(1) already do this for you.

if [ -z "${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS}" ]; then
	eval `dbus-launch --auto-syntax --exit-with-session`
fi
Hope that helps.

I went to ~/.dbus/ checked ls, there was only "session-bus" so i did "touch session.conf"

then went on with .xinitrc and .xsession, in my normal user account NONE of them existed!

in root account there is a .xinitrc though

It would appear you have more problems than the apparent dbus configuration issue, I for one will not assist you with those.

When you install a package, if there is any manual action you must take, such as starting services, a message will be produced on the console. It is common for new users to ignore these messages as unimportant, especially when they come from dependent applications like dbus.

These messages often describe exactly what must be done in rc.local to start a daemon at boot time.

You can reproduce these install messages with pkg_info. Please review the man page.

ye, thats what happened to me, however, i corrected it some days ago, but still get same errors, is it important to follow the "post-install" instructions immediately after packet install? or is it possible to correct those bloopers afterwards? e.g can my system be salvaged? or new install a definitive must-do?

This is the message you should have seen:
Code:
To start systemwide message dbus daemon whenever the machine boots,
add the following lines to /etc/rc.local:

if [ -x /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon ]; then
	install -d -o _dbus -g _dbus /var/run/dbus
	echo -n ' dbus'; /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --system
fi
Did you see this message, and did you place this exact set of shell script in /etc/rc.local?

I ask because it is not clear to me that is what you saw and did.

ye, i saw that text and followed the instructions a couple of days ago, however today i had another look at rc.local and might have spotted a flaw.

if [ -x /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon ]; then
install -d -o _dbus -g _dbus /var/run/dbus
echo -n ' dbus'; /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --system
fi

the above doesnt produce as much error logging as the one below (my previous):

if [ -x /usr/local/bin/dbus-daeon ]; then
install -d -o _dbus -g _dbus /var/run/dbus
echo -n ' dbus'; /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --system
fi

I just tried this in an OpenBSD 5.0/GNOME installation, and it works perfectly.

Yes it will work, but it is no longer best practice. This OS now uses rc.d scripts.
