Address Family not supported by

Hello all:
I did try to read thru the archives and did not see any posts on this - that
makes me think I may have missed some, so sorry if there are posts and
answers in archives.

I am seeing this message in my /var/log/maillog (My system info is below)

Mar 26 13:06:53 salvage3 spamd[3685]: processing message
<> for  charlie:500.
Mar 26 13:06:53 salvage3 dccproc[3689]: socket(UDP): Address family not
supported by protocol

Usually after a spamd run message like above.
Does anyone have any ideas where I should start looking?

My system info is:
I run my own e-mail as well as use my Road Runner e-mail.
It is just a one user system but I have a few different e-mails for
different interests.
RedHat 9.0 Kernel 2.4.20-31.9
Iptables 1.2.7a-2
Bind 9.2.1-16

I run DNS - Sendmail - Spamassassin (as spamd/spamc RedHat seems to like
that way - spamd running as a "service")

And I have setup Pyzor, & razor and trying to get dcc going now.

I have the following rule for opening 6277 in my rc.firewall
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p udp -s 0/0 --sport 6277 -m state --state
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p udp -d 0/0 --dport 6277 -j ACCEPT

Any help will be appreciated!
