Avahi's ssh.service can't be permanently disabled
Last modified: 2012-08-24 23:04:37 EDT
Description of problem:
From what I got, avahi is that broken by design that the only way to disable
a single service from being announced is "rm /etc/avahi/services/ssh.service".
However, the next avahi RPM update brings that file again. So from my point of
view and from what I can read in the documentation, it is unfortunately not
possible to permantely disable ssh.service in a real safe way. Please either
make the broken stuff configurable or (preferred by me) don't ship ssh.service
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, see above and below.
Avahi's ssh.service can't be permanently disabled.
Possibility to really permanently disable ssh.service while other services
are announced nevertheless.
Seriously, nobody (except maybe some Mac users) ever requires ssh.service...
