I am running RH 8.0 (Pyscho) and cannot connect to the Internet with a
web browser when trying to use an URL.
When using Netscape, the error message is (for example when trying to
reach Red Hat)
www.redhat.com could not be found
When using Konquerer, the message is
hostname lookup failure
I can load the Redhat site if I give its IP address (126.96.36.199) in
either browser. I can also ping varous sites using either the URL or the
My /etc/resolv.conf file is
Which is the same file that works with my RH 7.3 system.
It seems that there is something not working with the nameserver lookup
but I can not figure it out.
