Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11504
DNS lookups not working
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
Host lookups by name fail. ("host -d" returns a timeout.)
Network access by IP address works fine. I.e., I can telnet/ping/etc.
to a host by IP address.
DNS resolver configuration appears ok (I've maintained a plethora of Suns

Machine is on a LAN connected to the outside world via DSL (Cisco 675).
Other machines (assortment of PCs and Macs) do DNS lookups just fine with
I don't see any related bugs or FAQ items.
Unable to duplicate. Install current version and re-open bug report if conditions persist.
Solved by replacing Red Hat Linux with Mandrake Linux 7.0.
