    Hi All,

              Recently I had a problem with my Linux Redhat7.0
    machine and I had to reinstall every thing. Though I did it,
    I still have problem with "lpd". While booting itself it shows
    an error message:
    "Get_local_host: 'localhost' IP address not available ! "

           Same message I get when I try print command also.
    I edited the /etc/printcap and tried. Also I used printtool
    but no success.

    Infact I did all network configuration (I suppose !). When I try
    "ping" command to IP address of Printer, it respond properly.
    Similarly when I try to "ping" my machine from another, it works

    So I am unable to figure out the problem. Do you have any idea?
    Any tips are appreciated.
