           Summary: patch to dbus-1.0.0 spell to generate machine-id on
           Product: Codex
           Version: test grimoire
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: utils
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: mail at merour.de

Apps that use dbus might fail startup with an error message similar to:

D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid: 
Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id"

The solution is to run dbus-uuidgen --ensure.

According to the dbus-uuidgen manpage:

The primary usage of dbus-uuidgen is to run in the  post-install script
of a D-Bus package like this:
  dbus-uuidgen --ensure

The patch adds this line to POST_INSTALL.
