Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-07-06 20:33:59 UTC
By any chance have you changed the hostname of your machine?? CORBA
needs to be able to perform reverse name lookups, therefore the
hostname of the machine must either exist on a nameserver or exist in
the /etc/hosts file on your local machine.  So, if you are not
connected to a network with a running nameserver (or running one
yourself) then you need to verify that your hostname is listed in
/etc/hosts with the loopback address.  Reopen this bug if you are
still having problems.
