have you restarted your pc after modifying /etc/rc.conf? or re-run the
services by hand ?

can you show us your full rc.conf ?

( FWIW, i don't have  /var/run/dbus/dbus.pipe , but  /var/run/dbus/dbus.pid and
system_bus_socket )... I'm not running a full gnome environment (XFCE
actually), but i have all the hal , dbus and plkitd running just fine.
