Perhaps this is really a dbus question.  When I run 'dbus-uuidgen
--ensure'  I get an error that /var/lib/dbus/machine-id does not exist
(which it doesn't).  It appears that I already have dbus installed and
installing again shows it as manually installed.  I have put
'dbus=yes' in /etc/rc.conf and restarted the machine.  I don't have a
/etc/rc.d/dbus file that I can use to start the service manually
(which gives me pause).  Also, I googled where someone created this
file by moving it from /usr/share/examples/rc.d/dbus but I don't have
that either.

Again, thanks for any help.
