Description Warren Togami 2004-09-26 21:28:39 EDT
Description of problem:
My home DNS server resolves 'wombat' as  That worked when
I chose HTTP install and entered the hostname as 'wombat'.  But when
it gets to the point where it wanted to download hdlist, it failed
because it is no longer able to resolve 'wombat'.

/etc/resolv.conf was still pointing at my home DNS server, and ALT-F2
reveals that it is able to lookup regular names like 'www.google.com'.
 Somehow it is not able to lookup local names?

In any case, it worked after I manually added the entry to /etc/hosts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3-test2 i386
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-27 14:21:44 EDT
So ping wombat from tty2 doesn't work?
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-09-28 03:43:49 EDT
Yes, does not work from tty2.  Is there anything different about the
resolver here than when I began the HTTP install?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-28 10:13:50 EDT
There shouldn't be.  And /etc/resolv.conf is still correct?
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2004-09-28 16:08:09 EDT
Yes, and I am able to reproduce this easily.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-28 17:07:52 EDT
Did it work in the past?  Jakub -- any ideas?
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-09-28 18:15:38 EDT
I haven't had local lan domain names before, so I don't know.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2004-10-21 22:58:39 EDT
Still fails to resolve in FC3-3.1.
Comment 8 Warren Togami 2005-03-29 03:10:03 EST
New thought... is there any difference here where it does only forward resolve
in one place, and forward+reverse resolve in another?
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-27 19:10:31 EDT
Nothing I can think of.  Is this still broken?
Comment 10 Warren Togami 2005-04-27 22:28:36 EDT
Last tested in FC4test1 yes.
Comment 11 Jeremy Katz 2005-09-21 16:52:20 EDT
Was it the case in FC4 final?
Comment 12 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-26 16:14:45 EDT
Closing due to inactivity.
