[email@example.com: Bug#85594: unable to connect to d.net keyservers (ENOENT: no entry for requested name)]
I can't figure out what's wrong with distributed-net this time. Last time,
adding a dependency of libnss1-compat fixed it. Now... I have no idea.
libnss1-compat doesn't exist anymore.
I should mention that distributed-net is a statically linked libc5 binary.

the distributed.net client is unable to look up the IP for distributed.net servers. I asked some of the guys in #distributed on irc.distributed.net, and they said this happened a while back when it was linked to some wrong library.
This same thing is happening on 2 different boxes on 2 different networks at 2 different universities in 2 different states. I've tried both the 2.4.x series of kernels (the ones I run day-to-day), and even tried booting back into 2.2.17 just to try and flush, but it did the same thing. Here's a piece of /var/log/distributed-net.log
