yep. got that, in the meantime I tried simply small, but i got the same
|user at mymachine: sudo -i
|sudo: unable to lookup small via gethostbyname()
I don't get it. it worked fine even with the dot for 3-4 months, and now i get
this warning, which by the way now gives me trouble, for example amule
displays a warning, but starts in the background if i start it from a kde
icon, if i start it from command line it does start, displays a warning, but
can be seen.
thanks for the quick reply
