/etc/hosts not working?

If you have a Linux machine and your /etc/hosts is not working, make sure you have a file called

/etc/nsswitch.conf 
 
with the following content: 
 
passwd:         files
group:          files
hosts:          files dns
networks:       files dns
services:       files
protocols:      files
netmasks:       files
