lpr: unable to get official name for local machine
Ever since I upgrade to frozen(May 25) I am having all kinds of problems
with name resolution. Lpr is one of them, when lpd starts I get the
following repeated 5 times in messages:
Jun 3 13:35:39 widget-servis lpd: unable to get official name for local machine widget-servis
I connect to my isp via dialup and us slirp to emulate ppp so I gave my
machine a bogus name of widget-servis.
I didn't have any problems before with 1.2. Other problems include ppp, ping,
emacs, etc. Basically anything that trys to do a name resolve when starting
or uses a name resolve. I didn't change any of my hostname, resolve.conf,
hosts.* files during the upgrade.
Any pointers please! I am stuck using minicom and zmodem to download
things. It must me something simple but I just can't find it.
