Binary package hint: avahi-daemon

After a fresh install of Jaunty Alpha 3 avahi did not work and as a
result of that - not Bonjour in Pidgin, and some network discovery

I have been looking for a solution, but still - after the fresh install,
when I used Intrepid, it worked fine.

During boot I see some error with avahi-daemon (do quick to actually read), and I think that it is the same thing as I get when trying to startup avahi-damon:
daniel at daniel-laptop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon start
 * Starting Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD Daemon avahi-daemon                                                                                
 * avahi-daemon disabled because there is a unicast .local domain

And after login there is a notify regarding the same matter.

This same things is confirmed on my finances netbook. 
We used the Alternative Jaunty CD for install (due to that the install crashed when the installing user already existed in /home, on the desktop CD)

Awesome work - keep it up! ;)
