It's a package in itself.
rpm -q --whatprovides avahi
avahi-0.6.25-11.el6.i686

Hi David ,

Thanks for reply.

I know about this package . But i want to know when we install RHEL 6.3 how do we stop this package to get installed.
That means under which additional package it falls. I am trying to customise my machine and i do not want avahi.

I hope we crack it down really quick.

Thanks ,

Gaurav

Hi,

I think you can use "yum provides" to find what *uninstalled* packages would provide specific files.
For example:
Code:
yum provides '*/avahi'
Then you can blacklist that package by putting in an exclude line it in the .repo file.
Eg.
Code:
exclude=foo
HTH,

Evo2.

I suspect it's in Base system - Base

If it's one of the optional packages, you could prevent its installation; if not, you just have to remove it.

Cool

Thanks David,

I tried to remove optional packages manually including the base system package, but in vein. avahi always gets installed.
Anyways i will give it a last try. But the research i did for resolving this issue helped me to learn a lot.

I will post my findings here. So that it can help somebody like me.

Thanks,

Gaurav
