Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200800
Unable to determine address of message bus
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
I ran "yum update" and now at every login I receive an error dialog:
"Unable to determine the address of the message bus".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[zaitcev@niphredil ~]$ rpm -q GConf GConf2 dbus
Happens every time, but it's unknown what to do to reproduce on demand.
Steps to Reproduce:
Error dialog (see attachement)
No error dialog
The dbus processes seem to be operating, but perhaps some /var/run
file is missing or other dbus error. I have no idea how to narrow
the bug down to the right component.

are you still seeing this?
what's the output of echo $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS at a terminal?
do you get to that dialog from a gdm login or text login followed by startx ?
No, this is gone now. Unfortunately, I do not remember exactly what I've done
to get rid of this. It was not related to dbus, but rather to some GNOME thing.
I forgot that I filed the bug, sorry. I should've updated the report.
Now I think that I removed GConf altogether and that fixed it.
