Is this really what your hosts file says or have you modified it for
posting? It really should look like:
192.168.1.2 myhost.mydomain myhost
127.0.0.1 is the default loopback device which is used for intrasystem
TCP/IP. I believe localhost is just a convention but some things may
depend on that name. You definitely do *not* want these two addresses to
have the same name.

Others have responded with resolv.conf suggestion etc.
