experienced same problem here.  i'll pick up where craig left off (in the
email chain for bug 366776).

# dnsdomainname
# hostname
# cat /etc/hosts       deuteronomy localhost localhost.localdomain
# echo ' localhost' >/etc/hosts
# dnsdomainame
# hostname -f

aide now works.  (at least an "aide --init" is currently doing something.)

this never caused a problem before (and i remember purposely setting it
this way in the past, but now i can't remember why).

i don't know how aide would handle a configuration with no dns domain (a
small home network, a standalone workstation, etc), and maybe that
configuration is technically incorrect, but i don't believe aide shouldn't
require such to function.
