D-BUS not working after upgrade to jessie

Fri Oct 28, 2016 6:08 pm

I upgraded my Pi from wheezy to jessie.
Now i have the following issue:
At boot it says "Failed to start load Kernel Modules".
If i enter systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service it says "Failed to get D-Bus connection: Unkown error -1"
In fact dbus is not running.
What is dbus ? How can i get it running ?

Did you do

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
rather than a new install? Jessie uses systemd that introduces many incompatibilities with the initd system in wheezy so that a fresh install is preferable unless you just enjoy sorting out that kind of mess. The dist-upgrade option is a little chancy in my limited experience.
