You are right, was trying to find a solution first myself and not just let someone else do my work.
I found information about host, hosts, hostname, 127.0.0.1, 127.0.1.1, .... and apparently I made a mess out of it since installing x11vnc returns some 'Failed to fetch' msgs
@eSelix: right ;-)
EDIT: the problem was the resolv.conf file. Corrected this and now x11vnc installed and works.
Any clarification about the host files issue is more then welcome.
