    Default KDM error when log in

    Hello,
    I am experiencing a small problem. Anytime I try to log in after a reboot I get an error "an important problem has occurred and log in is not possible".
    and then I try again and it works. the log says that dbus is not working but it is !
    Code:
    dbus                      0:off  1:off  2:on   3:on   4:off  5:on   6:off
    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    Looks like something is wrong with your KDE install, or with the X-server. Please post output of
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/X11

    As it seems to be an openSUSE 12.1 system (we know not because the OP told us in the first line of his thread, but as a by-product of his repos listing ), could this be a systemd effect? Loging in while the system is not completely booted?

    The thing is I cannot prevent user from logging in and there is no way to know if the system has completely started. As soon as the logon screen appears users will think it's booted. So Is Is the only way to deal with it to warn them or could I make dbus start before ?

    Thanks

    I agree with what you say. But I only offered a possible cause. As long as we are not sure that it is the cause, we can ahrdly talk about a solution (or on how terrible it is).

    Thus, my suggestion was (apart from comment from others that may say to me: that is a lousy suggestion), to test this by e.g.
    • boot, then wait for about one minute (or until the disk light stops flivckering showing still boot activity) and then doing a first login to see what it does.
    • booting sysvinit instaed of systemd and then of course login like a mad man as soon as the login screen is there.


    When systemd is proven to be the culprit, you could decide to use sysvinit permanently (until systemd does better in a future openSUSE) and may be file a bug report (id there isn't not allready one).

    I am going to try this to know how long takes the system to be ready.

    booting sysvinit instaed of systemd and then of course login like a mad man as soon as the login screen is there.
    I am already using sysvinit instead of systemd-sysvinit. systemd-sysvinit was provoking some problems with automount.

    Thanks

    When you are allready using sysvinit, my suggestion is a dead alley.
