What's with the "[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Avahi#Error_while_mounting_SD_card Error while mounting SD card]" section in a page about Avahi??? Avahi has nothing to do with mounting any devices, nor SD cards.

Warning about its usage?

I strongly suggest that Avahi not be used at this time; especially with Win9X on the LAN. Avahi does nothing to help with the network connections and does not offer any services which are not available elsewhere. Worse, it is not complete, and is missing key elements.

Futher, since all networking configuration is extremely difficult, it is far more advantageous to focus the user on the basics. Unless the user is of advanced understanding of Arch and the inner workings of Linux in general, the use of Avahi is only distracting from the ultimate quest; having a simple and intuitive network and file sharing setup.

If any user might stumble upon this subject, it would be good to offer appropriate warnings at the begining of the article, and clearly explain the details of the tested situation offered in the article. Obviously it does not work in certain situations, as I can attest.

Thanks. - KitchM 20:51, 3 June 2010 (EDT)

This comment is quite long. Since Avahi upstream does see itself unstable, so maybe the warning here is not needed. At the same time, the "Not working situations" should be list clearly of cause. --Fengchao (talk) 05:49, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
