mdns4_minimal causes slow DNS lookups

Postby alshain » Sat Oct 30, 2010 15:22


I've been having issues with extremely slow DNS lookups from most programs.
nslookup on the other hand was blazing fast.

The solution for me was to remove "mdns4_minimal" from my nsswitch.conf.

The question is: What exactly is that, what I have removed - and why was it there in the first place? Or, why does it cause problems on both of my computers (different hardware) but is still a default setting?
