Out of the blue error messages about news server
For the second time I got two strange error messages in the shell while building software. The first time I was building AlienBOB's kde 4.7.4 and now I'm building the dependencies of xbmc, more specifically I've just finished installing libva. I got this:
news.my_news_server.com: Unknown host.
News server news.my_news_server.com unavailable, try again later.
I googled those error messages and the only thing I got were the two following threads where apparently the ops were trying to run some news service, which I am not.
The scripts marked as executable in /etc/rc.d/ in my system are:
The services enabled in /etc/inetd.conf are the default ones:
time stream tcp nowait root internal
time dgram udp wait root internal
comsat dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/tcpd in.comsat
auth stream tcp wait root /usr/sbin/in.identd in.identd
I really don't understand why I'm getting those notices. Has anyone ever seen something similar or have any idea of what may be triggering it?
