           Summary: DNS resolving with computer name.
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.29.
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://ash-fox.theden.ws/temp/weird-dns-issue.txt
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-net
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: Ash-Fox at QuickFox.org

When trying to install "Magic the gathering online", I encountered a weird DNS

This DNS issue seemed to be caused by the fact my system's computer name
(Tapestry) was not resolvable, which caused the program to ultimately fail with
a host resolving issue.

After adding the IP address to the /etc/hosts file for 'Tapestry', that didn't
help it, infact I got additional errors in the program popping up (see .txt link)

Only after I had added the entry (Tapestry) to my DNS server and removed it from
/etc/hosts would it work.

*** Upon further testing I found setting anything in my hosts file would cause
the "warn:winsock:wsaErrno errno 12, (Cannot allocate memory)." issue when
trying to resolve it. 

I'm currently using Kubuntu edgy, and the binary repositories listed on WineHQ's
