In a previous thread I had detailed an issue I was having with avahi not firing up properly at startup.As a bit of background: the services available on the server aren't advertising until I restart the avahi-daemon manually after startup - The syslog shows the daemon starting on boot, but it never seems to access the service file.I was wondering if it is possible that this may be a file permission problem?

All of the servers I manage run a bare minimum footprint. Unnecessary services waste server resources and they are potential security risks if not updated.This is why I want to "absolutely" remove the Avahi-daemon.

After upgrading from scratch to Ubuntu server 10.04 (previously 9.10), I noticed that my server was cast out of the Cheers bar , i.e., nobody knows its name anymore! (I have several Linux boxes on my home network).
Is there a new direction on how local networks are supposed to be configured? a new protocol? I know my problem is solved by simply installing avahi-daemon, but I wonder how other people are dealing with this issue.
i am running a sabayon linux system 5.0 when i attempt to log in onto my user account it fades back to log in page. i attempted to log in on the console and it still wont do so, but the avahi daemon does have two exclamation points in red which signifies to my mind an issue with avahi.
i log in as root and the computer opens...i go to system and it says the avahi daemon is not activating..my question... do i need the avahi daemon or is it redundant?would removing avahi damage the over all operating of my computer or should i have a geek reconfigure it
I've been using linux for a few months. Recently I have installed debian jessie and I'm learning how to secure my laptop. I have installed
Code: Select allapt-get install sysv-rc-conf
to shutdown few services that I believe I don't need at boot which I found very useful. Among others I have deselected avahi-daemon, cups, cups-browsed, etc. The problem is that, after rebooting, when running:
Code: Select allnetstat -lntup
I still find 'avahi-daemon: r' and 'cupsd' running. I have tried
As mentioned in the title something is terribly wrong with my system. After some updates in the last 2 days Plasma keeps on crashing like a jackhammer. Kwin reports bugs and siece to work. That said I have no borders of any window I have opened and no Kickstart menu. (I am using KDE 4.4.1.) On top of it all when I rebooted the system it just hangs when it is supposed to start X and KDM. When I switch to verbose boot I see that Avahi Daemon has a "Failed" sign. I have tried with older kernels, but that did not solve anything. To be honest I am clueless on how to fix Avahi. The easiest way is to reinstall Fedora, but I would have stuck with Windows for that and where is the learning opportunity in that?
recently i notice this warning in my /var/log/messages avahi-daemon: WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns! but i can't install it yum install nss-mdns No package nss-mdns available.
I use mt-daapd music server to stream music to a couple of network music players (which use UPnP protocols). Recently (last month or so) I have found that on restarting my ubuntu system I need to manually restart the avahi-daemon in order for the music players to be able to 'see' the music server. I think avahi-damon is running when ubuntu first starts up. The output of a ps aux shows:
I'd like to understand why I need to restart the avahi-daemon and either solve this or learn a way to automate restarting it on system boot up so I don't have to do it manually each time. My system is ubuntu 9.10 64 bit and the version of avahi-daemon is 0.6.25
i am succesfully installed TeamSpeak 3 server and now i want to startup it automatically without screen daemon and on every startup on linux ubuntu 9.10 i am using this command for start the TS3 server:./ts3server_linux_amd64 dbplugin=ts3db_mysqlin home/user/Desktop/ts3server_linux_amd64
I have a Centos 5.4 server, I would like to know how to start NFS automtically when the server boots up so that I won't have to manually start the service after the server boots up. where and how do I accomplish this?
I have a new HP G62-352CA with the Realtek 8191SE wireless. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 everything works fine except every time I restart the computer I have to press fn f12 to restart the wireless. Is there a way to have it default on at startup?
i use ubuntu 10.10 installed in wubi on my girlfriend's machine.in order to connect to the internet i had to install a dialer script and then i need to type in terminal: sudo cable-start and then password BUT i wish this to happen automatically when booting the machine.i am sure that it is possible, but have no clue how to do it.
After an upgrade to 220.127.116.11-78.2.56.fc9.i686 in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)
During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.
I have a few ubuntu machines in my house, 1 mythtv backend server with other services as well, 2 mythbuntu frontends boxes hooked up to tv's etc. I wanted to push the audio from my laptop out over pulseaudio to the machine connected to the AV equipment.
I could not see any other pulseaudio sinks in padevchooser... this lead me down the road to investigating avahi.
When I run avahi-browse on my laptop (hydrogen) it only returns the services published from itself:
My laptop has vmware on it, and I've changed the vmnet intefaces to not support multicast so avahi ignores them. but I'm still at a loss to why my laptop can't see the other machines on my network with avahi (mdns).
why my new Ubuntu 10.04 computer won't automatically advertise afp thru avahi to the network? This is a new install of Ubuntu 10.04, I downloaded and installed newest version of Netatalk, and the Avahi daemon. Both installed with no issues. (I followed instructions from articles on here) I can manually login to Ubuntu afp share from my iMac, by going to "Go to Server" and typing in the ip 10.0.1.3 and putting in the Ubuntu username and password. I just can't get it to advertise or broadcast itself to the network like it is supposed to using netatalk and avahi. I've followed all of the tutorials I can find on this, but nothing works. Even if I issue the command to restart avahi daemon, Ubuntu still isn't seen in the iMac's finder window? Because I can manually login to it, I am assuming that netatalk is working properly. I've even tried to issue the command to restart netatalk first, then restart avahi, but still nothing?
I've got problem with Avahi on my laptop. It can see the other machines and services on the LAN but not it's own local services and I have no idea why. The laptop (hostname: forseti) sports Ubuntu 10.10, installed aavahi-daemon, avahi-dnsconfd and libapache2-mod-dnssd. Firewall is disabled. Other hosts on the LAN are: magni (openSuSE 11.4 with lots of services published and visible from forseti) and freya (Ubuntu 10.10 with gnome-user-share up & running). Forseti can see the other hosts and their services but not itself. The other hosts can't see forseti. Checked both with nautilus and CLI's avahi-browse.
I'm creating a script that I want to run every time any user logs in (not only on the GUI, but also via SSH or via text terminal). The script will check if a daemon program is running (one per user or per session, haven't decided yet) and, if it isn't, will start it. I want this to be system-wide, not per-user. I thought about using /etc/profile (or creating a file in /etc/profile.d/) for CLI logins and /etc/X11/Xsession (same remark, Xsession.d) for GUI logins. My problem is that if the user uses a non-Bourne shell (e.g. TCSH) this won't work. Is there any initialization script that is run no matter what shell the user has?
I got a new X201 which is running Ubuntu 10.04. While at home, everything is fine, at work, I encounter some issues with wireless. the signal cuts in and out repeatedly.Here's the output of ping. I set it to ping a server every 90 seconds, 10 times. So this is a snapshot of 15 minutes of network activity...
PING (REDACTED) bytes of data. 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=1 ttl=252 time=1.50 ms 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=2 ttl=252 time=2.13 ms 64 bytes from (REDACTED): icmp_seq=3 ttl=252 time=1.38 ms
Also I tried this (from a 2 year old thread which was most relevant solution I could find):
Changing AVAHI_DAEMON_DETECT_LOCAL=1 to AVAHI_DAEMON_DETECT_LOCAL=0 in /etc/default/avahi-daemon has got rid of the irritating pop-up. Basically, every 5 minutes or so, for a solid 60 seconds or so I get no signal. I've tried updating the kernel, and doing apt-get remove avant-daemon, but still have problems.
