Hi List,
  I recently ran into a problem that I wanted to post to the board for
reference in regards to perl module LWP::Simple.  I had problems with
installation which would fail during testing.  What I found was that if your
host name is not resolved correctly via DNS that LWP::Simple will fail.

Ex.)  I had just built the server and named it test1 until I got it up.  So
in my /etc/sysconfig/network my hostname was posted test1.  It was not till
I added the full server name and domain  test1.mydomain.com to my DNS server
and then changed the vi /etc/sysconfig/network hostname from test1 to
test1.mydomain.com and restarted networking did it finally install.  I hope
this message will save some people some aggravation looking in other
