[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] avahi port

As I mentioned previously, I am porting avahi to the N800 and later the
770. I have packages built, but there is a small problem that prevents
them from working--when they are configured by dpkg they cause a
lifeguard reset. My working theory is this is caused by this command
issued by the postinst script for avahi-daemon:

invoke-rc.d dbus force-reload || true

What is the proper way to reload the DBUS configuration from a package?
Just using 'reload'?

Additionally, it seems avahi is not started on bootup :( I don't know if
this is because the configure script doesn't get to finish hence it is
not added to any runlevels, or if there is something special I need to
do on Maemo to get init scripts added to bootup.

However, once it is installed and manually started it does work. So
pinging Nokia-N800-51.local from a LAN machine works fine :)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
