1. route insists on using dns, ifconfig on modifying the routing table... please help me!

Sorry for the cross-posting -- but I really need you help!

Dear Guys,

nsswitch reads to translate hostnames just by "files". host.conf too....

"route add -host anyhost dev anydev"

wants to talk to the name server..... I straced it... and it really
queries bind for anyhost and nothing more..... although libnss_files
gets loaded, afterwards libns_dns gets loaded.

"ping anyhost" does NOT behave like this... it just uses files as it

Does anyone know why route always uses dns!? Is this a bug perhaps, or a
bug in the resolver.... this behavior appears only with route of SuSE
Linux -gt 6.0.

btw: does anyone know why ifconfig modifies the routing table if you set up a new
device?! for instance

 ifconfig ippp4 dstaddr

yields a route in the kernel to dev ippp4. Isn't that strange!?

thank you in advance,
