Many thanks. I fixed the first part by:

1) anchoring the calloc pointer with talloc[#talloc+1] = host
2) host2.ar_name = tquery[i]

I get a segmentation fault in the second part as well. I tried either
freeing the calloc ptr within the loop (as I get the replies) or at
the end:

for _,p in ipairs(talloc) do if p ~= nil then end end


local fdsi  ="struct signalfd_siginfo[1]")
local fdsip = sfd_si_tp(fdsi)

-- get replies
while true do
        if nqueries == nresolved then break end

        local s =, fdsi, ffi.sizeof(sfd_si_t))
        nresolved = nresolved + 1

        if s ~= ffi.sizeof(sfd_si_t) then print("error: read:", s) break end
        if fdsip.ssi_signo ~= SIGRTMIN then print("received signal:",
fdsip.ssi_signo) break end

        local outp = ffi.cast("struct gaicb**", fdsip.ssi_ptr)
        if not ffi.cast("struct addrinfo*", outp[0].ar_result) then
                print("error: cannot resolve:",
ffi.string(ffi.cast("const char*", outp[0].ar_name)))

        -- ai_addr: struct sockaddr*
        local ap = ffi.cast("struct sockaddr_in*", outp[0].ar_result.ai_addr)
        local name = outp[0].ar_name
        local ip   = C.inet_ntoa(ap.sin_addr)
        print(ffi.string(name), ffi.string(ip)) io.flush()

        --if outp[0] ~= nil then[0]) end

for _,p in ipairs(talloc) do if p ~= nil then end end
