Update

This issue had been resolved in dbus-1.12.20-r4

Original post

A recent D-Bus update to 1.12.20-r3 in Alpine Linux is preventing Phosh from running, the following message is seen in ~/.local/state/tinydm.log:

(phoc:3061): phoc-wlroots-CRITICAL **: 21:06:25.913: [backend/session/logind.c:805] Failed to open D-Bus connection: Permission denied

If you have not already upgraded to dbus-1.12.20-r3, hold off on doing so at this time.

This post will be updated when a reliable workaround and/or fix is identified.
