GParted error
« on: July 10, 2011, 03:51:32 PM »
Hello, I'm trying to run GParted in TinyCore 3.7.1.  I was get this error:

(udisks:8982): udisks-WARNING **: Couldn't connect to system bus: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory.

GParted runs fine in TinyCore 3.4.
Can anyone help?

Thank you.

It is working fine with me in TC 3.7.1, with or without dbus running.

It looks like your gparted is looking for a running instance of dbus.

Hello Jason, I don't understand why.  DBus is loaded.  My computer is portable, Compaq R3344EA, P4, 2.8 GHz, 512 RAM (BIOS reports 384 MB).  I load TinyCore directly from .Iso image file with Grub4Dos.  Extensions are located in /mnt/hda1/tce and, after loading TinyCore, takes 64 MB.  I load extensions using "ondemand" scripts.

What to do?

Ok, dbus is loaded, but is it running?  Check the "services" app and see if dbus has the green light.

Hello Jason, that's it!  GParted runs after enabling dbus service.  But ... what command must I put into script loader to enable dbus service automatically?

Thank you.   ;-)

Here is how you can start dbus from the command line or a script:
sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start

Hello ixbrian, command is successfull but can't load.  If I put that command in GParted "ondemand" script, script stops after enabling DBus service with "exec sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start", but does not run "exec sudo gparted" after it.  How to do?

Thank you.

Hi AlejandroPadrino
Try changing   "exec sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start"   in the script to
"sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start" and see if that helps.
By the way, you probably should not modify the Gparted script to implement this.

Hello Rich, that does not run, and don't enable DBus service.  Also was try from console in ondemand folder with error "gparted: unknown operand".

Thank you.
