Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-10-29 17:13:36 EDT
Description of problem:

An attempt of 'avahi-browse -a' or 'avahi-browse -a -d local' produces something
of that sort:

Browsing domain 'local' on any.0 ...
Browsing for services of type '_workstation._tcp' (Workstation) in domain
'local' on eth1.2 ...
Found service 'dyna0 [xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx]' of type '_workstation._tcp'
(Workstation) in domain 'local' on eth1.2.
Service data for service 'dyna0 [xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx]' of type '_workstation._tcp'
(Workstation) in domain 'local' on eth1.2:
	Host dyna0.local (192.168.yy.yy), port 9, TXT data:

output stops and nothing happens anymore.  One can only break-out with ctrl-C.
Is this really an exected behaviour?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2005-10-31 03:50:12 EST
This is expected behaviour. mDNS is a long-running operation, and the app will
print any dynamic changes on the network.
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2005-11-01 11:06:23 EST
Hm, maybe this behaviour is really expected but does that mean that zeroconf
attempts may also last for a very long time?  Does not sound overly useful.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2005-11-03 05:10:02 EST
By definition they last indefinately, until you cancel them. That is part of the
design, which is to allow a dialog to keep displaying an up-to-date list of the
services availible on the network.
