ip address lookup fails (for setting up /etc/hosts)
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:26:31 EST
The socket call to look up various info about a device is failing. This leads to not writing a correct entry to /etc/hosts for the hostname/IP combination.
I've got myself into a debugging mode, and it seems that I can't do any lookups via the stocket module, any kind of lookup results in:
[Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution
Even from something simple as:
socket.getaddrinfo('reducio.j2sol', None). reducio.j2sol being the install server, which I can ping by name from another tty. Something in socket land isn't happy and hasn't noticed the new resolvers to use. What's strange is that this doesn't seem to hamper later network lookups to get the repodata and such.
Patch thrown at upstream. glibc is dumb, news at 11.

So is this not an anaconda problem?
I can't seem to reproduce this anymore, I don't recall exactly what state I was in. Closing for now.
