I've a strange problem.
On ubuntu server 11. I've avahi running.
When I restart machine, in about 1 min server is up, I can connect through SSH or ping it via IP. But not via hostname server.local - it takes about 3-4 minutes for server.local to become accessible. That's allot!
I installed avahi to handle hostname. I believe there is something wrong with startup procedure and it gets delayed or smth. How should I diagnose the problem? or is there way to configure avahi to be more responsive?
p.s. I also noticed few times, hostname was accessible but not IP. Which makes me believe there is something really wrong going on.
