    Strange DNS Behavior on GPA14

    Shortly after I got my OG , I wrote some scripts to download podcasts. This worked fine for quite a while, but since I installed GPAxx, it doesn't work. I don't know whether it's GPA, the kernel, or just Gingerbread, but I can no longer wget files by domain name. It used to work on earlier BBs, and in Sapphire, but now that I've switched to GPA, whenever I try my scripts, or new commands, it goes like this:
    =================================
    # wget http://www.domain.com/path/file.ext
    wget: bad address 'www.domain.com'
    =================================

    However, if I ping the domain first to get the IP address of the domain, and then use that in wget, it'll work:
    =================================
    # ping www.domain.com
    ping www.domain.com (74.125.65.105) ...
    ...normal ping lines here...
    >break<
    # wget http://74.125.65.105/path/file.ext
    downloading file.ext
    ...100%...
    done
    #
    =================================

    The link to the files is still the same, and I can download them if I replace Domain with IP, but it's like wget doesn't know how to resolve a domain name into an IP address anymore. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Urugami
