 Re: hostname lookup.

Don't worry about /etc/resolv.conf until we know what hostname returns. Perhaps adding an entry in /etc/hosts is what you need to do. Put in the value returned by hostname and the IP address.

forgot to update, sorry 'bout that. working with friend, this is exactly what we did as a workaround. the problem is that in the port it does a hostname -s, which strips everything after the first '.' and then tries to do a hostname lookup on it, and promptly fails.
