The issue occurs since the update of avahi-autoipd which first conflicted with an older avahi-package that was left on the system. before that update everything was fine.
Comment 1 Ronny Fischer 2008-10-12 11:57:31 EDT
Problem solved.

It was the NetworkManager which was installed as a dependency and started automatically. The NWM took control over the network behavior of evolution. Turning NWM off solved this.

If possible I would like to know why this has become a dependency and why it is started per default?
