While installing bugzilla on RHEL, it checks for required modules: ./checksetup.pl --check-modules

It showed some unavailable modules.

While trying to install one of them, I encountered following error:

It looks like it cannot resolve hostnames, can you ping www.google.co.uk from that machine?

If thats the problem you can temporary edit your DNS settings, I don't now how it works in Red Hat, but here is the Ubuntu way:

sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf

Add DNS server manual:

#Google nameserver 1:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
#Google nameserver 2:
nameserver 8.8.4.4

Save the file and restart the network interface:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
