Hello,
I just noted that avahi-daemon is taking 50% of my cpu.

Is it harmless to remove this? I have no direct use of zeronconf as
each time it got in the way it was to do stupid things (like setting
unexistent interface)

but I don't know the dependencies

Hi jdd

I have stopped it and removed it from the init-sequence on the last 2-3
systems I've installed. I think I also saw it using up a lot of CPU.




Guys,

I don't know what I'm doing right, but I've never seen avahi before and
I
visit top quite often to check on processes and I make a conscious effort to
look for any that are making use of the CPU. I've never notice avahi doing
anything weird, but sure enough, it is running on my boxes:
