The "temporary failure in name resolution" sounds like a system error indicating that your DNS isn't working.  As a temporary workaround you could try specifying P4PORT as an IP address rather than a hostname, but I'd recommend checking with your sys admin to see how to fix your DNS -- if it works on Windows but not on Linux my guess would be that your Linux machine isn't configured correctly for your network.
