Many thanks for your reply Alvin. I do not have any named.conf file on
my system. Also using DHCP I could not modify my hosts file as the IP
address change @ each startup!
What I did is based on your advise, I changed the SMC Barricade Domain
Name to let say 'Home.fr'

given that you have a dns problem ?? ( ie .. things not working right )
i'd change the following:
# cat hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost GX200
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.10.123 gx200.courzet.fr gx200
GX200:/etc# cat resolv.conf
the above is whacky .. use a real domain like below
that'd be bad ..
the result of the following commands should always work:
# hostname -f
# hostname -s
# hostname -d
- you will have random problems with various ( more finicky ) apps
if dns is not properly config'd
for more debugging .. ( assuming you want bind )
what is the contents of your named.conf and the contents
of the files that named.conf references
Consequently I have now
# cat resolv.conf
but this is it! So I still have the following due to my unchanged
GX200:/etc# hostname -d
GX200:/etc# hostname -s
