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.

  - nss-mdns-config: Use /usr/etc/nsswitch.conf as input if
    /etc/nsswitch.conf doesn't exist yet
* Thu Apr 18 2019
  - Move libraries into the standard dir (/usr/lib*).
    nss_winbind already lives there, which I take as an indicator
    this move will work.
* Thu Mar 28 2019
  - Update to version 0.14.1:
    + No code changes.
    + Fix unit tests to properly work on s390x.
  - Changes from version 0.14.0:
    + Fix -Wformat-truncation problem during reading of the allow
  - Changes from version 0.13.2:
    + No code changes.
    + Change how ./configure --enable/disable-tests works:
    - --enable-tests: tests are enabled and will fail if
      dependencies are not found.
    - --disable-tests: tests are not enabled and will not be built
      even if dependencies are found.
    - no flag given: tests are conditionally enabled if
      dependencies are found.
  - Changes from version 0.13.1:
    + Very minor code changes (should result in no binary changes).
    + Reformat source to 80 columns.
    + Improve configure options to allow disabling tests even if the
      testing libraries are present.
    + Automake is now non-recursive.
    + Hardcoded paths are now exposed as configure variables.
  - Changes from version 0.13:
    + Fix an old memory leak in reverse lookup.
    + Fix the broken workaround for nscd segfaults (not all clients
      would see all results).
    + Simplify buffer management.
    + More unit tests, more cleanups, and fewer gotos.
  - Changes from version 0.12:
    + Fix segfault when using nscd.
    + Remove untested, unmaintained BSD support (please help out if
      you would like BSD support to return!).
  - Changes from version 0.11:
    + Moved to new GitHub location, docs migrated to markdown.
    + The long-deprecated LEGACY mode is removed.
    + The long-deprecated HONOUR_SEARCH_DOMAINS option is removed.
    + Unit tests are now included, with make check.
    + nss-mdns now implements standard heuristics for detecting
      .local unicast resolution and will automatically disable
      resolution when a local server responds to .local requests.
    + _nss_mdns_gethostbyname3_r and _nss_mdns_gethostbyname4_r are
      now implemented.
    + Full dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 support is implemented.
  - Run spec-cleaner, modernize spec.
  - Update URL and Source to new upstream home.
  - Drop unaligned.diff: Fixed upstream.
  - Add pkgconfig(check) BuildRequires and make_check macro, run
    buildtime tests.
* Wed Feb 28 2018
  - Modernize spec-file by calling spec-cleaner
* Sat Oct 18 2014
  - Fix bashisms in nss-mdns-config.
* Mon Apr 15 2013
  - Add Source URL, see
* Wed Jul 11 2012
  - Add nss-mdns-config script as a source, and install it in
    /usr/sbin: this script can be used to enable/disable mdns 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.
* Tue Dec 15 2009
  - Add baselibs.conf as a source
* Fri May 01 2009
  - Remove AutoReqProv: it's default now.
  - Also fix a typo in the description.
* Mon Oct 13 2008
  - simplify and correct baselibs.conf
