avahi and alsactl are installed and started after a kickstart using @base

Solution Verified - Updated -


'avahi' and 'alsactl' packages are still installed and started by default after a kickstart that includes only @base.

Please do not install and start these by default for systems provisioned from the base channel for the server product. There appear to be seperate channels available for desktop and workstation products where this would be more appropriate to install and use.
