My system runs fine, but
/var/log/messages repeats this message every
few seconds, filling up my log directory:
Oct 13 09:10:57 barry NetworkManager: <WARN> nm_dbus_manager_init_bus(): Could not get the system bus. Make sure the message bus daemon is running! Message: Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: Connection refused
Is there an easy way to stop this? I'm on Fedora 11, but am hoping this is a fairly generic fix. Thoughts:
I could turn off
rsyslogentirely, but that's overkill.
I could tweak
/etc/rsyslog.confto not print this message, but how do I do that w/o turning off other important messages?
I realize I could start the bus daemon, but I'm not sure what it does for me, if anything.
EDIT: Thanks, haimg. I tried your suggestion, and this happened:
# service messagebus start Starting system message bus: Failed to start message bus: The pid file "/var/run/messagebus.pid" exists, if the message bus is not running, remove this file [FAILED] # pgrep bus | xargs ps -wwwl F S UID PID PPID C PRI NI ADDR SZ WCHAN TTY TIME CMD 1 S 500 3568 1 0 80 0 - 831 poll_s pts/7 0:00 dbus-launch --autolaunch 443adbc9baaf7a04103739c04abbc618 --binary-syntax --close-stderr 1 S 500 3569 1 0 80 0 - 697 poll_s ? 0:00 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session
so there might be some more serious badness occurring here.
