Message: Can't start Hardware Abstraction Layer...

Sat Jul 07, 2012 10:24 am

I get the following message during the boot-up process just before the login.

"Can't start Hardware abstraction layer - please ensure dbus is running ... failed!"

Later there is a line that reads as follows:

"startpar: service(s) returned failure: dbus ... failed!"

I've no idea what this means. I'm able to log-in, but haven't been able to connect to the net (I don't know if these issues are related).

I'm powering my Pi through a samsung GS2 charger, using a usb keyboard and mouse.

I've also tried other combinations: A belkin 7 port powered usb hub and a Logitech K400 wireless keyboard. The usb port and keyboard work fine, but I still get the dbus failure message.
