Yes, tinydns is not found on the server anymore, just dnscache, 
deamontools is also still there. dnscache was going to be used for the 
qmail mail server to ease up dns lookups.

Output of cat /etc/resolv.conf was posted:

charon# cat /etc/resolv.conf

On localhost i installed dnscache to see if that would remedy the 
problem. All it has done is speed up DNS queries something i was going 
to add when i was going to compile adn install qMail anyways.
