A new version of the dbus packages will be pushed to current catalog in 
the next hours. This version fixes the fllowing bug

    0003626: dbus daemon will not stop on reboot/init 6 blocking the 
shutdown ( http://opencsw.org/bugtrack/view.php?id=3626 ).

This bugs prevents dbus from stop correctly. If dbus is running, it will 
be stop during update, thus update may freeze. In order to avoid this 
situation, you have to be sure that you don't have dbus running, or if 
it is running, you will have to kill it by hand before the upgrade.  You 
can retrieve the pid to kill with the following command :

bash-3.00# cat /opt/csw/var/run/dbus/pid


bash-3.00# ps -elf | grep dbus-daemon
 0 S messageb  1592     1   0  40 20        ?    634        ? 22:55:25 
?           0:00 /opt/csw/bin/dbus-daemon --system

Please "kill -9" the dbus process before running package upgrade.

Kind regards
