Same as up on my site, just put up here since this blog gets indexed by google more often
So a couple of irritating Gentoo bugs that I recently had to deal with. Posting here and on my old blog, so hopefully anyone with similar problems can get it resolved quicker, since the portage maintainers are often slow.
Audacious DBus Error: Issue
starting Audacious gives the following:
Audacious DBus Error: Fix
Use the following command as root:
Audacious DBus Error: Reason
The music player inexplicably requires a unique id to actually start up. A normal dbus install on Gentoo doesn't create the machine-id file with the id in it.
Timidity++ Service Error: Issue
When trying to start timidity++ you see:
Timidity++ Service Error: Fix
In /etc/init.d/timidity delete the following text:
Timidity++ Service Error: Reason
Emerging timidity failed to give proper privledges to the created Timidity user, so this just makes it run as root (Lazy, I know). You could also try to play with adding user permissions.
