Avahi on SME v9.2.0 X64...
« on: March 26, 2021, 05:32:21 AM »
Does anyone use Avahi on SME 9.2.0 ?

I installed it and tried to configure it for SMB but it doesn't work, the Mac still sees SME as a PC.
Do you have any ideas for the more precise configuration on SME/Koozali ?

I installed these RPMs :
avahi-0.6.25-17.el6.x86_64.rpm
avahi-tools-0.6.25-17.el6.x86_64.rpm
libdaemon-0.14-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
nss-mdns-0.10-2.el6.x86_64.rpm


# vi /etc/avahi/services/smb.service
Code: [Select]
<?xml version='1.0' standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM 'avahi-service.dtd'>
<!-- Generated settings: -->
<service-group>
 <name replace-wildcards='yes'>%h</name>
 <service>
  <type>_smb._tcp</type>
  <port>445</port>
 </service>
 <service>
  <type>_device-info._tcp</type>
  <port>0</port>
  <txt-record>model=Xserve</txt-record>
 </service>
</service-group>

# vi /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/nsswitch.conf/10files
Code: [Select]
hosts:      { ($AccessType eq "off") ? "files" : "files mdns4_minimal dns mdns4" }
# /sbin/e-smith/expand-template /etc/nsswitch.conf

Not knowing if it is necessary, but :
# /sbin/e-smith/config set avahi service TCPPorts 5353 UDPPorts 5353 access public status enabled
# /sbin/e-smith/signal-event remoteaccess-update
# /etc/init.d/masq restart

Go :
# /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon start

And nothing. The Mac still sees SME as a PC.

Thanks in advance.

Please read the manual before doing this sort of thing so you fully understand the implications.

We have said this before.

Who use Avahi ?

I think you are in a minority of one.

...
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.

I do see it being updated on proxmox. It's not something I use knowingly and I certainly wouldn't open it to the world. Is it something you need or is it one of those x y questions?

Most likely an XY, again.
