SMB conflict with Zeroconf / Avahi in Kubuntu 6.06
I recently lost the ability to browse my Windows PC's via SMB and also the ability to print using SMB to a Windows PC with USB printer attached.
After many, many lost hours I figured out this probably had something to do with Zerconf / Avahi. (The clue was in various people having issues with a 169. Ip address).
After much trial and error I found that if I purged the Avahi daemon installation I could browse as far as a Windows share on another PC but timed-out at the file system level.
Purging the Zeroconf installation allows me to browse at the File system level and print as well.
The have performed various de & re installs but can no longer make Zeroconf / Avahi co-exist happily with SMB.
This used to work ......... perhaps it broke in an upgrade? I can't be sure.
Can anybody give me any clue on how to make these live happily together?
