GDM/Gnome will not start with D-Bus 1.6.0
|Reported by:||Wayne Blaszczyk||Owned by:||Armin K|
On a fresh build, GDM will not start when D-Bus 1.6.0 is installed. The following error is produced when starting dbus:
Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory However dbus-daemon does start. I suspect this is something to do with not having systemd installed.
The following error from :0-greeter.log :
D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid: Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory
Installing D-Bus 1.4.20 and then re-installing D-Bus 1.6.0 fixes the problem.
