RUN DBUS 0.23 on Fedora Core 3

Fedora Core 3 is with DBUS 0.22 by default.
Now i would like to install DBUS 0.23 but not delete or override 0.22.

Here is my steps:

Download DBUS 0.23 from

./configure --prefix=/opt/dbus --with-system-pid-file=/var/run/

And then I run as usual:
make install

/etc/init.d/messagebus stop
( Stop the old one )
( But i could still see the dbus-daemon in memory by "ps -A | grep dbus" )

/opt/dbus/bin/dbus-daemon-l --system
( Start the new one )

Then the following is running the skype api test program...

But ,the skype api test program replies :"dbus-bus-get failed..."
Is anything going wrong with DBUS ???
Who could give me a hand?

I've never used DBUS, but if you're still seeing the daemon in ps, then the stop probably didn't stop that, and it's interfering with the new one. You probably need to kill it before starting the new version. That's my best guess, but I have no experience with this product.
