squeeze, dns, fetchmail error
How to troubleshoot this error? I've done hours of googling but can't
find anything that helps.
fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of pop-server.triad.rr.com
(pop-server.triad.rr.com): Name or service not known
fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS)
If I replace "pop-server.triad.rr.com" with the IP in .fetchmailrc, then
fetchmail works fine, and very fast. ping and nslookup get the dns done
Here is my ~/.fetchmailrc:
# IP is 188.8.131.52
poll pop-server.triad.rr.com proto pop3 auth password
user "hlawson" password "PASSWD"
Something very similar happens with emacs gnus in relation to its news
server. This is a squeeze trial install. My regular Debian is lenny,
and it works fine.
For some reason, squeeze puts the ethernet interface on eth0, while in
lenny it's eth1.
