amarok + ruby + lyrics


I'm using amarok-1.4-beta3c. It works really fine, and is a pleasure to use. But the lyrics feature never works for me. I've tried scripts
1) lyriki
2) Astraweb and,
3) Lyric

lyriki says :
There was an error fetching the lyrics,
while Astraweb and Lyric give an error :
The script 'Lyrics : (Astraweb/Lyric)' exited with error code : 1
/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:562:in `initialize': getaddrinfo: Temporary failure in name resolution (SocketError)

	from /opt/kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/lyrics_lyrc/lyrics_lyrc.rb:155
I checked out their forums, seems like a lot of people were having problems related to this, but they say that it was sorted out in the newer versions.
Maybe my ruby's not being able to connect properly and some additional config is necessary. I'm clueless!

Help needed!

Thanks in anticipation
