I disagree....  It means you can't easily install avahi-0.6.7 on SuSE
10.0 !

Ok, well I can do it, but not as easily as you ought to be able to do
it.  You can't start the avahi-deamon using the "enable" button in YaST.
It doesn't start (see first post in this thread).

Here's what I've just found.

If I force static_hosts_load to open /usr/local/etc/avahi/hosts it works
If I force it to open /hosts it crashes.

Now I'm confused because if the chroot to /usr/local/avahi/etc has
happened then opening /usr/local/etc/avahi/hosts should not be possible
and opening /hosts **should work**

There is something very odd going on I think !
