This package contains a plugin for the Name Service Switch, providing host name resolution for the locally configured system hostname as returned by gethostname(2). It returns all locally configured public IP addresses or -- if none are configured, the IPv4 address 127.0.1.1 (which is on the local loopback) and the IPv6 address ::1 (which is the local host). A lot of software relies on that the local host name is resolvable. This package provides an alternative to the fragile and error-prone manual editing of /etc/hosts.

    2014-07-22 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org> libnss-myhostname (0.3-7) unstable; urgency=medium * Add autopkgtest to test hostname resolution without /etc/hosts, and also test with nscd installed. * Fix nscd compatibility (Closes: #755053), thank to Sam Morris for digging up the patch, taking from the systemd repository.

    2013-06-20 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org> libnss-myhostname (0.3-6) unstable; urgency=low * Fix duplicated ldconfig calls in maintainer scripts, thanks to Michael Prokop for noticing. (Closes: #712802)

    2012-01-17 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org> libnss-myhostname (0.3-4) unstable; urgency=low * Fix Package's description to reflect changed behaviour. (Closes: #656218)

    2011-06-28 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org> libnss-myhostname (0.3-3) unstable; urgency=low * Implement Multi-Arch support * 0004-Ensure-a-LANG-independent-generated-README.patch: Make sure the generated html file is independent of the current LANG

    2011-06-17 - Joachim Breitner <nomeata@debian.org> libnss-myhostname (0.3-2) unstable; urgency=low * Apply patch by Robert Millan, adding legacy support for BSD and hurd kernels (Closes: #630206) * Use dh-autoreconf to take care of autoreconfing

Existing installations are not modified.
