Problem removing "avahi" via PAKFIRE

At some point in the past I seem to have added avahi via pakfire but I dont really need it so I removed it.

Now every time I boot the system I see “windbindd”, “cupssd”, “nmbd”, and “smbd” all reporting missing libraries either libavahi-common or libavahi-client !!

Re-adding avahi corrects this - is there a way around this or am I stuck with avahi ???


That looks like you have samba installed and that requires avahi to be installed. Avahi is also a dependency if you have cups installed for printing.
Leave it in place.


Do the addon description explicit dependancy of other addons?

Ahh that explains it - many thanks,
