I am trying to set up local hostname resolution on my Fedora machine. I have installed samba-winbind samba-winbind-clients pam_krb5 and then went through the procedure shown on: https://www.server-world.info/en/note?os=Fedora_25&p=samba&f=3

I have added wins to my /etc/nsswitch.conf as follows: hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns myhostname wins

I then try to use wins to find my raspberry-pi which I can find on my Ubuntu install.

If I add wins before myhostname I get: $ ping my-pi Segmentation fault

When it is as shown above I get: $ ping my-pi ping: my-pi: System error

Any pointers on how to diagnose/solve this issue would be much appreciated.
