Re: Revised TODO
It's kind of an alternative to nsswitch.conf. I'm not sure why it exists...
It looks like this on FreeBSD:
skaro:/skaro# cat /etc/host.conf
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/host.conf,v 1.6 1999/08/27 23:23:41 peter Exp $
# First try the /etc/hosts file
# Now try the nameserver next.
# If you have YP/NIS configured, uncomment the next line
And on Linux:
hotrod:~# cat /etc/host.conf
As I said, FreeBSD's resolver really didn't like the Linux version of the file,
which is in base-files.
