I was in an irc discussion about a wget problem I've been having. I'm
not sure what info you will want so I'll just give the discussion.
<Daphron> I'm trying to download yaourt.
<Daphron> $ wget
<Daphron> But that only gives me this...
<Daphron> --2010-07-27 16:16:50--
<Daphron> Resolving aur.archlinux.org... failed: Name or service not known.
<Daphron> wget: unable to resolve host address “aur.archlinux.org”
<Daphron> wget www.google.com works so why doesn't this work? (can any
of you test it and see if it works for you?)
<micahcowan> Sounds like a problem with your resolver, or possibly a proxy.
<Daphron> I have no idea how to fix that, anything to read?
<micahcowan> Not really... but it sounds like a problem with your DNS.
You might edit that to point at some other DNS server. ...are you able
to access that URL from a browser, or some other tool?
<micahcowan> It might be worth a try to stick a "." after the
<Daphron> added '.' didn't work
<micahcowan> Yeah, was worth a shot, but not very likely.
<micahcowan> What does "dig aur.archlinux.org" give you?
<Daphron> When I try to access the url in firefox it sucessfully
downloads the file

<micahcowan> Hm, maybe wget is using a proxy that firefox (and dig)
aren't? What's "env | grep -i proxy" have to say?
<Daphron> I pasted into terminal and nothing happens
<micahcowan> Okay... you don't have proxy settings in /etc/wgetrc or
~/.wgetrc, do you?
<micahcowan> Do you have the host and nslookup commands? Try "host
aur.archlinux.org" and "nslookup aur.archlinux.org"
<micahcowan> (And make sure wget is still not working for you - maybe it
was a temporary issue?)
<Daphron> wget still not working. Nothing in wgetrc files
<Daphron> $ host aur.archlinux.org
<Daphron> aur.archlinux.org has address 184.108.40.206
<Daphron> aur.archlinux.org mail is handled by 10 mail.archlinux.org.
<Daphron> $ nslookup aur.archlinux.org
<Daphron> Server: 172.16.0.1
<Daphron> Address: 172.16.0.1#53
<Daphron> Non-authoritative answer:
<Daphron> Name: aur.archlinux.org
<Daphron> Address: 220.127.116.11
<micahcowan> I'm stumped then. Wget just uses the system library's
"gethostbyname" function to resolve names, which is pretty standard.
Apparently something's interfering with that, or maybe it's linked
against a library that is naughty and provides its own version. I really
don't know what to say at this point.
<Daphron> BTW the git protocol has never worked for me on this computer
but works on my other one. Think this is related?
<micahcowan> Could be. Perhaps there's firewalling preventing the git
protocol from working?
<micahcowan> Don't know why someone would block name services, though,
or why that would impact one program and not another.
|<-- cirzgamanti` has left freenode (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
<Daphron> Don't think so. I deactivated the firewall and git didn't
work. Could try deactivating for wget
<Daphron> anyways, thanks for your help. I think I'll try the mailing
list now and see if anyone else has some ideas.
