[Solved] Avahi daemon => cap_set_proc() failed

When trying to run the avahi daemon, I get the following message: cap_set_proc()failed: Operation not permitted

Why could that be?
I'm running fully updated system with gnome2.14

Re: [Solved] Avahi daemon => cap_set_proc() failed

If avahi fails after upgrading to kernel26 2.6.16.1-4, try this:

in your /etc/rc.conf  file, find the MODULES line, it should look something like this

MODULES=(!usbserial)

As root, use vi or gedit to add "capability" to that line in order to load the capability module at boot up.  It should now look something like this:

MODULES=(!usbserial capability)

This problem is covered in this

bug report.

Hope that helps.
