Re: DNS issues



Hi!

What did the /etc/nsswitch.conf file look like after you installed only
the i586 package?  What I see is that

    mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return]

gets inserted into the hosts line.

When no nss_mdns is installed, the host line reads:

  hosts:      files dns

After installing nss_mdns.i586, name resolving is broken. The only changed line in nsswitch.conf is the hosts line, which now reads:

  hosts:      files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns

After installing nss_mdns.x86_64 as well, name resolving works again. The nsswitch.conf file is unchanged, the hosts line still reads:

  hosts:      files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns

If there is something like [UNAVAIL=return] or [!SUCCESS=return] then
this is a problem because the UNAVAIL action is used in case the module
is missing.

There is nothing like that in the nsswitch.conf even when name resolving is broken.

Should I file a bug in bugzilla?
