Right. And what does that have to do with the firewall of the desktop
I mean, i am not opposed to introducing a seperate package for the avahi
libs, but i wonder what that has to do with the firewall of the desktop
And mentioning an admin's tale about a server is not really to the point is
Perhaps I misread the original comment - but it was the suggestion of
having avahi running by default.
Do you mean having that be the case from the livecd or from the package
If the former, then you're right it's a side issue. I thought the latter
was being discussed which is why I brought up that report.
