Description Erik Quaeghebeur 2019-04-20 16:05:22 UTC
It seems that the symbolic link in /etc/systemd/system for avahi, dbus-org.freedesktop.Avahi.service points to the wrong destination, namely ../../../usr/lib64/systemd/system/avahi-daemon.service instead of /lib/systemd/system/avahi-daemon.service
Comment 1 Erik Quaeghebeur 2019-04-21 19:42:16 UTC
?SOMETHING? = dbus-org.freedesktop.Avahi.service
Comment 2 Erik Quaeghebeur 2019-04-22 20:03:31 UTC
Probably related to

Bug 510158
Bug 506276

I don't know how I should mark the relationship here or there.
Comment 3 Alexander Tsoy 2019-11-01 22:18:55 UTC
avahi ebuild should call "systemd_reenable avahi-daemon.service" in pkg_postinst()
