Description Rex Dieter 2006-05-17 09:44:10 EDT
The compat-libdns_sd stuff is limited and incomplete (from
http://0pointer.de/avahi-compat).  In particular, doesn't work with
kdelibs/kdebase (see bug #187822).

I'd like to have the possibility of packaging/using Apple Bonjour
(mDNSResponder), but can't because of avahi's compat lib using the same

So, please either omit the --enable-compat-libdns_sd bits, or make those parts
an optional/separate (sub)pkg so it is at least possible to replace with the
real libdns_sd from Apple Bonjour.

(*) OK, I had to hack mDNSResponder to use a real soname (the default Makefiles
are a mess), and happended to collide with avahi's libdns_sd soname.  I could
continue the hackage to simply use a different soname (ie, not libdns_sd.so.1),
but I'd rather not have to do that.
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2006-05-30 19:52:21 EDT
OK, this is now fixed with avahi-0.6.10-1.FC6 - it now provides libdns_sd in
a separate 'avahi-compat-libdns_sd' sub-package, which is optionally installable
(nothing else depends on it). 
BTW, it might be worthwhile trying out the new avahi-compat-libdns_sd package
to see if it now works with kdelibs/kdebase - I'll do some testing as described
in bug #187822 and see if I can resolve the issues with avahi-compat-libdns_sd.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-05-31 08:12:10 EDT
Don't bother (I don't think it's saveable), I found an avahi-native libkdnssd
implementation for kdelibs that seems to work nicely.  See bug #187820 for details.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-05-31 08:13:27 EDT
Thanks for splitting the compat lib!  Now we'll at least have the ability/option
to use apples' mDNSResponder.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2006-06-07 19:39:57 EDT
avahi-0.6.10-1.FC5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.

I think this can be closed now.
