View Full Version : [ubuntu] update problem--network service discovery disabled

January 2nd, 2010, 07:14 PM
When I ran updates and installed 9.10, this message appeared, "Network service discovery disabled. Your current network has a .local domain, which is not recommended and incompatible with the Avahi network service discovery. The service has been disabled." The computer will not respond to anything, completely frozen--I am not able to open any programs and the CPU itself seems to be running loudly. Any help? :confused:

Ever since 9.10 I have had no connectivity to my windows network. My system runs just fine, just no windows connectivity with the same error message you see at startup. I have tried modifying smb.conf and tried most things in this post


this helps some as I can at least mount my windows network, but all I see is my Ubuntu machine set up through Samba and I still see the error message and I still see no windows pc's.
