Deletion

This article is marked for deletion, however it still has lots of backlinks, e.g. systemd. I think it may be worth to keep it as it's for example a way to link to its upstream documentation. -- Kynikos (talk) 11:31, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

What about rename it to Systemd/D-Bus to reflect their relationship. The pace of moving D-Bus into the kernel is speeding up recently. So this area will become the hotspot of linux world soon. We'd better keep it a seperate page for this big move. -- Fengchao (talk) 13:54, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
I don't really mind if this stays as a main article or as a subpage of systemd, I'm just removing the Deletion template 'cause I think we need to spend two words on D-Bus somewhere, and link to its documentation (not duplicate it, of course). If you want to rename the page, go for it. -- Kynikos (talk) 11:11, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
As far as educating new archers goes, this article is not on the same level as everything else I've been reading. But rather than deleting it, I would prefer to see it expanded. I'm currently having an issue with dbus not starting in my user session, and of course I'm about to follow the 4 or so links here and continue my research there. But as this is a really big part of systemd, I'd personally hope for a larger article in what I consider the most useful wiki in Linux (if not the internet, sans Wikipedia). Just, perhaps we could include more information on interacting with and configuring/maintaining dbus? Perhaps a section on troubleshooting/resolving common problems, etc. Admittedly, I currently cannot give more specific suggestions on what to add to the article beyond what I've already written, but perhaps I can after resolving this issue, or perhaps other people have a ideas on how to flush this article out to be more substantial. Just the 2 cents of a fairly new archer who is trying to resolve a dbus problem. PS - I hope I did my indentation correctly. This is my first "talk page" edit - so please correct my indentation and forgive my mistake, if necessary. BoneTone (talk) 8:03, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
