Description of problem:

[root@vennely root]# whois redhat.com
Address family not supported by protocol initializing protocol stacks?!?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

whois 1.0.9-1
It apparently appeared in connection to the upgrade which among other things 
included the perl 5.6.1 upgrade
Comment 1 Marcin Garski 2004-09-27 16:43:20 EDT
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It has been replaced by jwhois.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.
