Any time I do host name resolution, be it thru telnet, rsh, rlogin, ftp
or whatever, I get
Bad system call (core dumped)
I can't be sure, since I can't reach my box right now, but would a
"domain" line from /etc/resolv.conf cause this?
nslookup, btw, seems to work just fine.
rsh and ftp can use IP addresses; telnet still dumps core.
This is regardless of whether I reference a host in /etc/hosts or if
it needs to do name resolution.
