restarting the dbus system service


I tried to run the command in my Centos 6.5, 64 bit system

parted /dev/sda 'print'

and the output was

** ERROR ** This program cannpt start until you start the dbus system service

aborting...
Aborted


So I learned the way I thought that I could start the dbus system service
which was:

service messagebus restart

but when I ran that command I got the command

** ERROR ** This program cannpt start until you start the dbus system service

aborting...
Aborted

So how to I start the dbus system service? I cannot run anything until I started the dbus system service.


R,

Can you simply start it with the following?
Code:
service messagebus start
Check the status with
Code:
chkconfig messagebus
If necessary do
Code:
chkconfig messagebus on

No fsck in filesystem

Okay, service start gives the response:

service messagebus start
sh: service command not found

chkconfig messagebus gives

sh: /sbin/runlevel : No such file or directory

chkconfig messagebus on
give no response at all.

but simply typing chkconfig

chkconfig

gives

Code:

wlmd             0:off   1:off  2:on   3:on  4:on   5:on  6:off
If I copied them down correctly.

There is no fsck on my system, but there is fsck.ext2 in /sbin which I presume is for files of ext2 type only.

There is also an fack.ext3, fsck.ext4 and fsck.extdev all in the sbin directory.

What they are is the equivalent og fsck, but for specific files.


Are these last statements correct?

Please guide me on the next step.

Any help appreciated.

R,


jyunker

Assuming you're at runlevel 2,3,4, or 5 messagebus is set to be active
Code:
messagebus       0:off   1:off  2:on   3:on  4:on   5:on  6:off
You could always check that the daemon is running
Code:
ps -A|grep dbus

Refer to 'man fsck'

No, specific partition types.
