Description of problem:
hcid needs to connect to the D-Bus system bus. Unfortunately, it hcid is started at priority 25 level and the D-Bus system bus isn't started until priority level 98. Since the D-Bus system bus isn't available when hcid is started it exits immediately.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. chkconfig bluetooth on
3. login and seen that hcid isn't running
Actual Results: Dec 23 10:04:09 lt16585 hcid: Bluetooth HCI daemon
Dec 23 10:04:09 lt16585 sdpd: Bluetooth SDP daemon
Dec 23 10:04:10 lt16585 hcid: Can't open system message bus connection: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory
Dec 23 10:04:10 lt16585 hcid: Unable to get on D-BUS
Expected Results: Dec 23 10:08:57 lt16585 hcid: Bluetooth HCI daemon
Dec 23 10:08:57 lt16585 sdpd: Bluetooth SDP daemon

I think we need to start dbus earlier.

There probably should be an API in dbus to let you monitor when the bus becomes
active and goes away. This is probably not a blocker, though. Moving to target.
If bluetooth can't start up because dbus is starting too late, then that's a
blocker. I thought I saw a report that we'd started dbus earlier though --
although I don't see it in this bug or in bug #176774 at first glance.
Let's not let this bug evolve into the RFE you mention in comment #3 -- keep it
simply for "dbus ate my bluetooth dÃ¦mon", and please close it if that's no
longer true. Switching back to blocker.
There is an API. Setup a timeout when the bus goes away and check if you can
connect at each interval. BTW D-Bus now starts before bluetooth except there is
no way to relink already created init scripts with checkconfig so you will only
get it in a fresh install. I also filed a bug on expat (Bug #178743). It needs
to be moved to /lib since dbus requires it.
Is this a dupe of bug 104058 ?
