Hi again,

I noticed that my CLFS is not able to do any kind of hostname lookups. I 
have no clue why this behavior appears.For example "ping" 
results in:

"ping: unknown host"

I double checked /etc/resolv.conf, tried several different nameservers 
but did not succeed in getting the corresponding ip address. The network 
connection is generally ok because I can ping every IP outside 
(including which correspondends to Another 
try in writing a C program using the gethostbyname function (used parts 
from resulted in an 
error (gethostbyname("") returns NULL). CLFS installs 
libresolv in 
I ran all test suites of glibc without any errors...

Any tips?
