Description of problem:
Using rawhide-20070904.0.iso on a usb stick, the avahi-daemon service is failing
to start on boot. It succeeds if I start it manually after booting. Let me know
if you need more information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Ronald Warsow 2007-09-05 16:34:59 EDT
on the rawhide live cd from 05.09.2007

avahi-daemon: segfault at 00000000 eip 0804cc50 esp bfc78460 error 4
on boot up, but is restartable without segfault
Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-06 11:15:38 EDT
Hmm, this is really difficult to debug without a proper backtrace. Could you
please try to generate one via a gdb script?

Also, what does syslog say before the crash happens?

Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2007-09-06 12:04:00 EDT
It's difficult, since I'm booting from a live image, and the second time it
starts it doesn't segfault. I don't think I'll be able to get you a backtrace
until I can install it, which is blocked by bug #278711.
Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2007-09-21 10:32:41 EDT
Zack, any update on this?
Comment 5 Zack Cerza 2007-09-21 12:39:09 EDT
I'll check today.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2007-09-21 22:28:49 EDT
Ok, I had a look, and it seems that the absence of /etc/resolv.conf makes
avahi-daemon segfault.

I've booted the live cd in single user mode, and started dbus.


segfaults, but 

touch /etc/resolv.conf

Fixed in 0.6.21-6 which I just commited to Rawhide.
