Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216674
dbus-1.0.1-1.fc6 needs /var/lib/dbus directory
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:48:01 EST
Description of problem:
After installing dbus from the fc6-testing and restarting system
you get an error message at dbus initialization saying that it cannot
create /var/lib/dbus/machine-id. This is because the directory /var/lib/dbus
does not exist.
Creating /var/lib/dbus and restarting solves problem. I guess the rpm
should creter/own this directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created /var/lib/dbus; but still got the following error after restarting.
process 20182: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read
machine uuid: Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id": No such file or directory
See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.

Sorry; I mis-spoke. I had logged out and in and got the above error. When I
actually RESTARTED, everything worked fine.
I am getting the same error when restarting. This is actually
a re-appearance of bug 214027 (but the other was for rawhide and
is closed there).
