    Starting gnome-session via Dbus on NetBSD


    Hello,

    I am Newbie and
    I have just installed gnome-session & gnome desktop on
    NetBSD 5 using the package system but when i modify my xinitrc file to
    execute gnome-session for startx i recieved this error
    gnome-session[425] :Warning: Could not connect to ConsoleKit: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or
    directory

    gnome-session[425]: Critical: dbus_g_connection: assertion 'gconnection' failed

    process 425: arguments to dbus_connection_send_with_reply_and_block() were incorrect, assertion "connection != NULL" failed in file bus-connetion.c line 3298.
    This is normally a bug in the application etc....

    i have no idea if the dbus is running.. I have tried to
    read the similiar threads on the internet on this issue
    but alot of answers are related linux or freebsd so i
    have no idea whether the answers are applicable to
    netbsd plus i have tried them all

    e.g. dbus-launch gnome-session in the xinitrc etc

    Can anyone help me

    Try

    mkdir /var/run/dbus
    /usr/pkg/bin/dbus-daemon --system
