Comment 6 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-12-19 18:03:48 UTC
I can't find the bug I reassigned to avahi which describes the issue here. 
Basicly avahi's D-Bus security policy has a debianism which appeared in the
latest upstream tarballs.  The netdev user is part of debians way of restricting
user access.  In the future we will most likely use PolicyKit but for now
console user and root access seem the way to go.

Comment 7 Martin Bacovsky 2007-01-07 15:48:38 UTC
This bug should be fixed in avahi-0.6.16.

Comment 8 Torsten Rausche 2007-01-08 12:42:01 UTC
An update to avahi-0.6.16-1.fc6 does not seem to fix it for me.

Comment 9 Jérôme Benoit 2007-01-16 15:33:11 UTC
Latest update do not fix it for me too, only happens on my x86_64 box. My two
x86 do not seems do be "affected" anymore.


Comment 10 Martin Bacovsky 2007-01-16 16:08:49 UTC
Ok, now that really should be fixed (avahi-0.6.16-2.fc6). If you still have
troubles, let me know.

Comment 11 Michal Jaegermann 2007-01-17 21:11:35 UTC
What about bug 218140, which is really the same bug as this one but
for "devel", and still lingers as NEW and avahi there still not fixed?

Comment 12 Martin Bacovsky 2007-01-18 09:49:10 UTC
I know about that bug. I hope I will have a little time in the next few days to
fix that along with upgrade to upstream 0.6.16.
