Cannot start Avahi service



  • I have a brand-spanking new installation of pfSense 2.0.2-RELEASE, no extra packages installed.

    I've just installed the Avahi package, gone through setting that service up, but the service itself won't start.

    when i try to start it from services, even though the notification at the top of the page says service started, the service still shows a stopped state.

    My logs show only this error: php: /status_services.php: The command '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/avahi-daemon.sh stop' returned exit code '1', the output was 'No matching processes were found Stopping dbus. rm: /var/run/dbus/dbus.pid: No such file or directory'

    I've verified the file /var/run/dbus/dbus.pid exists, have even deleted it manually and started dbus manually which recreates the file.

    Any direction would be appreciated.



  • Hi!

    Just want to know if you managed to get it going? I'm stuck here with the same error (pfSense 2.0.3), and before I'm about to dig in I thought I should ask first. :-)
