Good morning,

Whenever I type /etc/init.d/dbus start &> output.txt, I get the following:
Code:

 * Starting D-BUS system messagebus ...Failed to start message bus: Failed to open socket: Function not implemented

 * start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/bin/dbus-daemon'
 [ !! ]
 * ERROR: dbus failed to start


I can't start dbus, so I can't log into any GUI at the moment. So I dual boot with crunchbang. But where do I start troubleshooting this?

The solution was just to recompile my kernel. Dbus requires that the kernel has support for unix domain sockets, which in turn require networking supprt.
