Hi, i'm having problems with resolving hostnames on busybox. Busybox was built statically using glibc-3.2.3.
On my busybox system I have the following (network related) files in /etc :
contents as follows:
order hosts, bind
hosts: files dns
too much to mention
too much to mention.
When I try and ping for example, www.bit-tech.net
I get the following:
# ping bit-tech.net
ping: bit-tech.net: Unknown host
Similarly another example:
IP addresses work fine, and the machine in question is even able to sucessfully act as a webserver. If i add an entry for bit-tech.net into /etc/hosts, then pinging bit-tech.net works fine, so i know the hosts file is acting as it should!
Is there something i need to compile into my kernel?
Any help appreciated, i've spent all day trying to sort this out.
