I tried loading the bluez extension (which has dbus as a dep)

Opening the services box shows both dbus and bluez as started, when neither of them is started.

If I click both dbus and bluez boxes to change them from green to grey and then click on the bluez box, it turns green, but not the dbus box, when in reality starting bluez starts dbus.

Using microcore and the *gz files, the ~/.X.d folder is not populated with wbar and if I add a file to start dbus (named dbus), it is not executed

No status function in the init.d script, or not returning a code. Please add :)

True, there's only a full scan on the start. With more than a couple services it can take seconds to check the status of every service.

I'm sure having an UI freeze that long is not preferable. Constant polling would use cpu without much gain (but be the only way to get the status of a service started from elsewhere), and multithreading would introduce much complexity for such a simple app IMO.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

True, wbar as part of Tiny Core versus wbar as an extension.
I have updated the startup script for wbar and tested OK with wbar starting as expected.

Good find. Thanks!
