 On a fresh build, GDM will not start when D-Bus 1.6.0 is installed.
 The following error is produced when starting dbus:

 Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory
 However dbus-daemon does start.
 I suspect this is something to do with not having systemd installed.

 The following error from :0-greeter.log :

 D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine
 uuid: Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory

 Installing D-Bus 1.4.20 and then re-installing D-Bus 1.6.0 fixes the
 problem.
