I have modified the file /etc/dbus-1/system.conf where I have changed the document to something like that:


The computer passes the grub menu and starts booting fedora. But at a certain point the DELL logo blinks and nothing happens any more. I see the IP appear on the router, but I cannot log in using ssh:

ssh: connect to host PRIVATE_IP port 22: Connection refused

In summary I think that DBus is broken and I don't manage to make my computer start up.

I am operating a Fedora 32 OS. On a DELL Latitude 5500.

I so strongly wish to simply access the filesystem in order to reset the file to default empty configuration. Would you think of a way?


The best solution I found was to start fedora on a usb key. Then use the Disk utility to mount the partition containing the root folder of the installed fedora (the one not booting). Then modify the /etc/dbus-1/system.conf file and restore it to the default state.
