Running specjour on Linux

Avahi

If you're having errors starting specjour listen, make sure that the avahi daemon is running. This should be true for most conventional desktops, but you might have problems on a minimal installation.

On Ubuntu you will probably need libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev in order to install specjour, this should do the trick:

sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev

On an Arch Linux, this should do the trick:

sudo /etc/rc.d/avahi-daemon start

Check your own distribution's documentation for the specific way to do it there.

Add Bonjour to Gentoo

Add this to your /etc/make.conf

USE="[...] dbus autoipd howl-compat mdnsresponder-compat "

And then install the following :

emerge nss-mdns
emerge net-dns/avahi

Add avahi (Bonjour) to the boot sequence :

rc-update add avahi-daemon default

Edit the file /etc/nsswitch.conf :

#hosts:       files dns
hosts:      files dns mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] mdns4

This allows your system to resolve the names foo.local
