Description of problem:
After a recent upgrade I get this (also after compiling whois from the source)
[root@vennely root]# whois redhat.com
Address family not supported by protocol initializing protocol stacks?!?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. whois redhat.com
Actual Results: Address family not supported by protocol initializing protocol
Expected Results: Display of info on redhat.com
It apparently appeared in connection to the upgrade which among other things
included the perl 5.6.1 upgrade
whois is no longer included in Fedora Core.
It has been replaced by jwhois.
Upgrade to lastest release of Fedora Core and try jwois, if this bug
still occur, please reopen.
