dbus problems



Hi,

I seem to be having some rather large problems with my x86 laptop. It looks 
like there is a problem with dbus somewhere.

What happened was this. Last week, I ran file-roller as sudo to copy 
something into /usr/local. For some reason, most of the applets vanished and 
it looked like a gconf error. Everything hung. I restarted X, but all I got 
was the mouse pointer and the animated circle things.

I restarted the machine and lots of things went wrong. avahi, mysql, httpd 
and haldaemon all fail to start. If I try to login, all I get is a message 
that there is no /home directory for a particular user.

I can log in as root.

If I try gconftool2 --spawn, everything seems fine.
If I try to start haldaemon with /etc/init.d/haldaemon restart, it fails
If I try to start mysqld with /etc/init.d/mysqld restart, I get a timed out 
error

If I try to run lshal, all I get it

error: dbus_bus_get: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoServer: Failed to connect 
to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused

Any suggestions on what to look for or alter? I'm running rawhide and 
updated today.

TTFN

Paul
