Well probably i should have told that i am using ptxdist to build. So yes i am 
doing a full distribution build.

I just copied the system.conf and upstart files from ubuntu as i am also using 

The patches i found for 1.6.8  where only three files:
timeout01_no-fatal-warnings.patch  <-increase timeout
20_system_conf_limit.patch <-aptdaemon not needed for me
81-session.conf-timeout.patch <raise timeout>

So nothing conclusive. So if anyone has an idea what might be wrong i am happy 
to hear. I have not found any log messages pointing to the problem other that
the dbus connection fails.

Best regards
