http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, I'm having DNS issues with a fresh Fedora 11 install (worked fine in 10). ping works fine, resolves domains with no problems. However, all other programs (firefox, wget, thunderbird, yum, etc.) cannot resolve domains. Forcing the use of OpenDNS servers works fine, but getting the DNS through DHCP does not. This seems to be related to the bugs listed here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=505105 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=504951 I have tried the advice in the second bug to no avail: Quote: First: install nss-mdns (I have installed only i586 on fedora x86_64, should be installed x86_64 too) yum install nss-mdns Second: edit /etc/nsswitch.conf Change line: hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns to: hosts: files mdns4_minimal dns Anyone know of any progress on these issues? Thanks, ~Sirius (HowTos)
