both of this services stop working, when i tried to start them i get this

Code:

andres ~ # /etc/init.d/wicd restart
 * Starting D-BUS system messagebus ...
 * start-stop-daemon: /usr/bin/dbus-daemon is already running             [ !! ]
 * ERROR: dbus failed to start
 * ERROR: cannot start wicd as dbus would not start


Code:

andres ~ # gnome-power-manager
TI:14:35:49   TH:0x1fa1140   FI:gpm-main.c   FN:main,220
 - This program cannot start until you start the dbus system service.
It is <b>strongly recommended</b> you reboot your computer after starting this service.
Traceback:
   gnome-power-manager() [0x4195b8]
   gnome-power-manager() [0x40f6ec]
   /lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xfd) [0x7f024772ed2d]
   gnome-power-manager() [0x408a39]


i have already tried to re-emerge wicd, gnome-power-manager and dbus but i get the same.
obviously is the dbus service but i dont know what to do.

if is necessary any other info. please just tell me.

thanks, and greetings from Guatemala. :D

Some Gentoo installs keep the start/stop status on the HD and not ramdisk and may be confusing the status of dbus on reboots if not cleaned up. Is dbus actually running? If not, need to debug that (and clear out the status).

Did you/can you reboot?

Try /etc/init.d/dbus zap if it thinks it's running but not actually?

The initscripts/baselayout keeps track of which services are running and which are not. This is separate from if they are actually running - this is for keeping dependencies straight.

Is dbus running now, after clearing up baselayout state and restarting dbus?

you can run "ps -ax|grep dbus" to see if it's running.
