AVAHI Does not start



  • Hello,

    I need to run the AVAHI deamon for mdns related services but somehow the service does not start.

    I had it installed and thought it was running but when I looked in the services status I saw the red cross and in the system log the following errors

    ec 3 07:38:43	avahi-daemon	38887	avahi-daemon 0.7 exiting.

    Dec 3 07:38:43	avahi-daemon	38887	WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!
    

    Does anyone has some clue or pointers for me to make it work (again)?

    I need it on LAN and one Vlan network. No other packages are installed for mdns related services
