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 www.heise.de"
"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 126.96.36.199 which correspondends to www.heise.de). Another
try in writing a C program using the gethostbyname function (used parts
from http://gnosis.cx/publish/programming/sockets.html) resulted in an
error (gethostbyname("www.heise.de") returns NULL). CLFS installs
I ran all test suites of glibc without any errors...
