Machine does not boot. The last boot message (at which the machine apparently hangs) is "Starting avahi-daemon."
The machine is a Dell 600m, 512M, 160GB hard disk. It has Ubuntu and FreeBSD as a dual boot. I installed FreeBSD 7.0 and everything was fine. I added the Gnome2 package and the first few times everything was fine. I was trying to set up the wireless card and got it working. The first time this bug happened, the message was "$dbus_enable is not set correctly" followed by "$polkitd_enable is not set correctly". I included the 3 lines in /etc/rc.conf: polkitd_enable="YES", dbus_enable="YES" and hald_enable="YES". It booted fine a few times after that. Throughout, I have been fiddling with my network configuration in /etc/rc.conf, /etc/hosts and /etc/nsswitch.conf.
Here are the files that I was playing with:
My /etc/hosts file reads:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.my.domain laptop2
192.168.2.4 laptop2 laptop2.my.domain
My /etc/rc.conf files reads:
The computer stops in the same place most of the time. Sometimes, it boots without a problem.
