Subject: MDNS using avahi2dns


I am trying to hack together

The hard part is done by,
which will use avahi to resolve .local domains. With it running,
commands like

$ dig @ printer0032DB24.local

will work.

In my laptop I was able to just have


in /etc/resolv.conf, but I realize now that it worked only because wifi
was relatively slow. On my desktop, using ethernet, the router answer
sometimes comes first and name resolution fails.

I will try setting up a local unbound next and configure it to forward
to avahi2dns for .local and the DHCP provided server for everything

I just wanted to check if musl doesn't have the support to selectively
forward to different name servers.


P.S.: I am not subscribed to the list.
