This is a dupe of bug #492915

Check your /etc/hosts for invalid entries. `man hosts` to see what constitutes a valid entry.
Comment 2 Manuel Gil 2009-05-26 11:29:51 EDT
then, why this file don't crash in older linux version, I check hosts file and didn't found wrong entries. I write ipaddress hostname, but I follow look in for diferences, because is sure that I have something wrong, but I don't understand, why in linux 5.2 is working whith the same hosts file
Comment 3 Siddhesh Poyarekar 2009-05-26 12:14:03 EDT
I'm not sure why but it looks like the entry is simply ignored in the older version. It's probably due to some change in behaviour of GtkCList -- looks like the earlier version accepted nulls. 

In any case, if you see the bug #492915, the upstream version (and Fedora) has introduced proper validation. We need to port it back into RHEL in some form.
Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2009-09-02 10:16:50 EDT
Closing as dupe, and bug #492915 is the one we're tracking and currently proposing to get fixed for RHEL-5.5.

Thanks & regards, Phil
