Hi, I'm getting this on bootup after following the instructions to install Gentoo precisely. I can post my /etc/host.conf if needed, but it will take me a few minutes to figure out how to get it pasted into this forum on links (which is what I'm using at the moment).

But I can say that I have no modified that file except for the instructions in the guidebook. And that line was code that was already there and was not put there by me.

Here is the file:

Quote:
# /etc/host.conf:
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/sys-libs/glibc/files/2.3.4/host.conf,v 1.2 2004/11/24 05:31:58 vapier Exp $

# The file /etc/host.conf contains configuration information specific to
# the resolver library. It should contain one configuration keyword per
# line, followed by appropriate configuration information. The keywords
# recognized are order, trim, mdns, multi, nospoof, spoof, and reorder.



# This keyword specifies how host lookups are to be performed. It
# should be followed by one or more lookup methods, separated by
# commas. Valid methods are bind, hosts, and nis.
#
order hosts, bind


# Valid values are on and off. If set to on, the resolv+ library treats
# the .local top level domain as link-local domain and sends multicast
# DNS requests to the multicast address 224.0.0.251 port 5353 instead
# of normal DNS requests. If you already use the .local domain in your
# nameserver configuration you will have to switch this option off.
#
mdns off


# Valid values are on and off. If set to on, the resolv+ library
# will return all valid addresses for a host that appears in the
# /etc/hosts file, instead of only the first. This is off by
# default, as it may cause a substantial performance loss at sites
# with large hosts files.
#
multi off
