I just discovered Avahi, and I am really impressed. It is exactly
what I needed!
I've doctored my slogin and ssh scripts so that if they see a hostname
of the form *.local, they will ask avahi-resolve to get the IP address.
But what I would really like to do is somehow change my system resolver,
so that *any* application will send .local requests to avahi and
other requests to the standard DNS service. Does anybody know
a way to change the resolver library, or to change the configuration
for named, to make this happen?
I am running Debian etch with named from the bind9 package.
