Gentoo: Thunar crashing


Hello all,

I'm running xfce4 on Gentoo and recently have strange Thunar's behaviour: its crashing app. 10-15 seconds (sometimes almost immediatelly) after opening making me unable to browse files under Thunar.

When running from root in terminal, thunar gives an error:

Quote:
Thunar: Failed to connect to the D-BUS session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Segmentation fault
rc-update -s:

If I remove dbus from runlevel, then thunar works fine (without crashing).

Any idea how to solve that (while keeping dbus) will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Did thunar was compiled with the dbus flag? if so, you could recompile thunar without dbus support, at least it's not a critical part of the package

Thanks for reply, Acron. Yes, it was initially, then I removed dbus flag, recompiled it again but it crashed regardless of that. Strange. Currently, I have dbus removed from runlevel and thunar works fine and will keep this settings as long as everything works fine (pragmatically )

That's odd, I know that thunar uses dbus for internal process but that's when is compiled with such support, maybe is because they way you're running it, I mean, you say that was from the console as root but don't know if using thunar as normal user and leaving dbus gives troubles also

I searched a little bit but didn't find nothing useful, I hope that someone might give you more input on that problem

Actually, I run thunar from console & as root just to see error messages, normally I run it as user from menu, but it makes no difference if dbus is running. That's why I removed dbus (also hal) from runlevel and everything works fine (for the time being )

..and of course, thanks for yr effort to help me.

EDITED:
just as curiosity; when I start hald manually (it starts dbus too), thunar works without crashing.
