system logger fails to start at boot
When Mandrake 9.1 is booting up you see all the services starting and passed or failed I get a failed on this one but the kernel logger starts fine.I went into Mandrake control center and tried to start it manually but no go. What do i do to correct this?

Could be your system can resolve its own host name. Check what invoking "host <>" reports.

You can fix this by appending <> to the line in /etc/hosts.

[barry@h24-82-209-125 barry]$ host h24-82-209-125 has address
This is the output I get.Anything wrong there? localhost
This my hosts file.

The response looks ok, so I am probably pointing you down the wrong path. Something to try is to modify your /etc/hosts file to: localhost localhost.localdomain h24-82-209-125

Also, check that your /etc/nsswitch.conf file has a line like:

hosts: files dns
