Hoya! After having been using Vavoom for a couple of years now, I recently upgraded from Fedora 11 to Fedora 12. Of course, I wanted to re-install Vavoom... To no avail! <!-- s:-( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:-( --> When I try to run it from console, here it what it returns : [MAD@the-asylum ~]$ vavoom -heretic -opengl -iwaddir /home/MAD/.vavoom/heretic-shareware/ Adding /usr/share/vavoom/basev/common/basepak.pk3 adding /home/MAD/.vavoom/heretic-shareware//heretic1.wad Adding /usr/share/vavoom/basev/heretic/basepak.pk3 Adding /usr/share/vavoom/basev/heretic/xmusic.pk3 Host name: the-asylum Doing C_Shutdown Doing CL_Shutdown Doing SV_Shutdown SV_Shutdown failed Doing delete GNet Doing V_Shutdown Doing T_Shutdown Doing Sys_Shutdown Doing delete GSoundManager Doing R_ShutdownTexture Doing R_ShutdownData Doing VCommand::Shutdown Doing VCvar::Shutdown Doing ShutdownMapInfo Doing FL_Shutdown Doing W_Shutdown Doing GLanguage.FreeData Doing ShutdownDecorate Doing VObject::StaticExit Doing VName::StaticExit Doing Z_Shutdown UDP_Init: Couldn't get local host by name the-asylum, Check your /etc/hosts file. Also, when I try to run it from the menu, it simply does nothing. If I remove the registered wad, it dowloads the shareware version, then nothing happens. So, what is the trouble with my hosts file? I used to play using Vavoom without trouble. Please help me <!-- s:-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:-) --> Be funky M A D

True! I have just changed my /etc/hosts. Now it reads: 127.0.0.1 the-asylum.localdomain localhost ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 But Vavoom won't run though... It returns: UDP_Init: Couldn't get local host by name the-asylum, Check your /etc/hosts file. According to you, what is the problem???

It still is not there, the-asylum.localdomain is not the-asylum. It should be somethink like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost the-asylum
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

Clearly your /etc/hosts is missing entry for your host name the-asylum.
