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 <your.host.name>" reports.

You can fix this by appending <your.host.name> to the 127.0.0.1 line in /etc/hosts.

[barry@h24-82-209-125 barry]$ host h24-82-209-125
h24-82-209-125.vs.shawcable.net has address 24.82.209.125
This is the output I get.Anything wrong there?

127.0.0.1 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:

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain h24-82-209-125

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

hosts: files dns
