[ipcheck] Problem with DNS setup

Your hostname could not be resolved to an IP address.
This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly, and/or there is no dns entry for your hostname. Please be sure that the contents of /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and also that there is a correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone file.

Some or all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check that file if you believe everything else is correct.

You may be able to automatically correct this problem by verifying your hostname information.
