avahi daemon failure


i am running a sabayon linux system 5.0 when i attempt to log in onto my user account it fades back to log in page. i attempted to log in on the console and it still wont do so, but the avahi daemon does have two exclamation points in red which signifies to my mind an issue with avahi.

i log in as root and the computer opens...i go to system and it says the avahi daemon is not activating...

my question... do i need the avahi daemon or is it redundant?

would removing avahi damage the over all operating of my computer or should i have a geek reconfigure it

thank you very much

I would say you could do without but I reccommend you fix it rather than removing it.

Do a quick read of belov and see if it is something you can do without.
