dbus "rm /var/run/dbus/Desktop can't remove..."


Hi all, happy 12.2!

After upgrading to 12.2 i got a boot worrning:
"rm /var/run/dbus/Desktop"
"can't remove /var/run/dbus/Desktop is a directory"
I got the same error when run in Konsole "/etc/rc.d/rc.massagebus restart"

Did you move all *.new configuration files over old ones (for those you didn't modify manually)?

See step 6 of the upgrade instructions at:

http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackware-12.2/UPGRADE.TXT

dbus configuration files have been updated between 12.1 and 12.2

Hi, thanks for attention!
I moved all .new files over olds. Yesterday i removed the directory /var/run/dbus/Desktop and the worrning disappeared May be this is one of changes in dbus since 12.1, now i have not such of directory.

What I'd be wanting to know is how that directory got there at all. It appears that you've actually logged in as the "messagebus" user and started a desktop environment, which created the Desktop directory. If that's the case, I think the best answer I can give is "you're doing it wrong."

Well, rworkman! I never been logget as messagebus user. In that directory "/var/run/dbus" the only things now are dbus.pid and system_bus_socket=. Previously there was the directory Desktop, which was empty. I don't see there a directory related to any user.

Those two things are the only ones that should be there. Just to satisfy my curiosity, do an "ls -a /var/run/dbus" and see what comes up...

ls -a /var/run/dbus
./ ../ dbus.pid .gnome-desktop/ system_bus_socket=

this is. I have ".gnome-desktop" directory from some time that i see. I had gnome-slacky and some parts of gnome installed to use some applications from there. May be these dirs was related to desktop menagers. Is it possible the "Desktop" directory been placed there from old KDE?
