dbus fix – ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric)

October 11, 2011 Leave a comment

In case you have installed Ubuntu oneiric and notice a dbus error at boot, here is the fix:

1) create directories /run and /run/lock,
2) move contents of /var/run into /run and /var/lock into /run/lock,
3) delete directories /var/run and /var/lock
4) create replacement simlinks; e.g. ‘ln -s /run /var/run’ and ‘ln -s /run/lock /var/lock’

Reboot, and things should be back to normal.
