Summary: Host Name Resolution Via Multicast DNS (Zeroconf) for glibc
nss-mdns is a plug-in for the GNU Name Service Switch (NSS)
functionality of the GNU C Library (glibc) providing a hostname
resolution via Multicast DNS (aka Zeroconf, aka Apple Rendezvous, aka
Apple Bonjour), and effectively allowing name resolution by common
Unix/Linux programs in the ad-hoc mDNS domain .local.

nss-mdns provides only client functionality, which means that you have
to run a mDNS responder daemon separately from nss-mdns if you want to
register the local hostname via mDNS. I recommend Avahi.

By default, nss-mdns tries to contact a running avahi-daemon to resolve
hostnames and addresses and makes use of its superior record cacheing.

  - Add nss-mdns-config script as a source, and install it in

    /etc/nsswitch.conf (-4/-6 can be used to restrict
    enabling/disabling to IPv4/IPv6).
  - Change %post/%preun scriptlets to use new nss-mdns-config script
    instead of custom perl-fu.
  - Do not restrict mdns support in /etc/nsswitch.conf to IPv4: just
    pass --enable to nss-mdns-config in %post. Fix bnc#710231.
  - Only call nss-mdns-config in %post on first install, to avoid
    overwriting changes done by users. Fix nss-mdns side of
  - Do not call sed to change /etc/nsswitch.conf to remove services
    not provided by nss-mdns anymore: when we need this, we'll be
    able to integrate this in nss-mdns-config.
