[SOLVED] Whois error

Hi!
Do you have anyone idea why command “whois google.com” returning:

getaddrinfo(whois.com): Servname not supported for ai_socktype

Thanks

Check permissions on /etc/services

rj@voidlinux:~$ ls -la /etc/services 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 768737 Feb 20  2014 /etc/services

rj@voidlinux:~$whois google.com
