Improving Avahi Startup Speed

At least on my network, disabling the IPv6 functions makes Avahi start up faster. You do that by tweaking the obvious IPV6 line in /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf:

use-ipv4=yes
use-ipv6=no

It’s also useful to disable power management in the USB WiFi dongle by adding /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf:

# Disable power saving
options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0
