I have no idea what these Console messages mean. Are they bad?

So, among other messages, tihs keeps repeatedly popping up:
"2/13/12 1:18:40 PM qmasterqd[466] CNetworkUtils::getLocalNetworkHostName: unknown local host name - this should never happen!"

as does

2/13/12 1:18:40 PM com.apple.qmaster.qmasterd[51] 2012-02-13 13:18:40.344 qmasterqd[466:3273] CNetworkUtils::getLocalNetworkHostName: unknown local host name - this should never happen!"

I'm also getting a lot of:
"2/13/12 4:29:57 PM Google Chrome[156] Cannot find function pointer CMPluginInFactory for factory 3487BB5A-3E66-11D5-A64E-003065B300BC in CFBundle/CFPlugIn 0x14294dd0 </Users/oxband/Library/Contextual Menu Items/Google Notifier Quick Add CM Plugin.plugin> (not loaded)"

Anyone have any idea what these are about?

Do you have the GMail notifier plugin installed in Chrome or attempted to install it?

I couldn't find anything about your issue on google but as it says "unknown local host name" it might be worth a try to assign a new hostname to your mac.

System Name can be set under "Preferences" -> "Sharing", and the hostname setting is under "Edit..." in the same window. (to be sure, do a reboot when you are done)

Another thing worth checking, might be your hosts file under /etc/hosts. Its contents should look like this:

Quote:
##
# Host Database
#
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
##
127.0.0.1 localhost
255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
::1 localhost
fe80::1%lo0 localhost
To view your hostfile, open a terminal window and enter "nano /etc/hosts". To exit nano, hit Ctrl-X.

The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

I do have GMail notifier. You think that's causing it?

It looks the GMail notifier is causing the problem. Try removing it temporarily to see if the error clears. Let us know.

So, I uninstalled and installed it and i'm getting the same message:

2/14/12 2:38:06 PM Google Chrome[11783] Cannot find function pointer CMPluginInFactory for factory 3487BB5A-3E66-11D5-A64E-003065B300BC in CFBundle/CFPlugIn 0x32ef50 </Users/oxband/Library/Contextual Menu Items/Google Notifier Quick Add CM Plugin.plugin> (not loaded)


is this a problem?

It sure looks like the notifier is still causing the error. Try running Chrome without any extensions or plug ins and the notifier to see what happens.
