Hey again,

Google is your friend, so try improving your googling skills before
posting. ie: google search the error you are getting;

> Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a
> socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
> err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out

I've turned up a number of threads elsewhere, about similar issues.
I've onloy included a couple of them;

http://kzar.co.uk/blog/topic/mac  - try this solution. you will need
to open a terminal to apply these commands.


Launchd isn't providing the socket path, because by default it is
disabled. (that appears to be your problem, anyway).

NOTE: if /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist &&
/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist do NOT exist
on your system, then you will probably need to build dbus using
macports (as it provides these files).
I believe this 'should' be installed though...

NOTE:  if using 'sudo' does not work, then instead of;

launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

instead of

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

the -w argument from what i read is supposed to apply it for all
users, and that is why you would use sudo. So if that doesn't work,
applying the top command should work.
