Description David Cantrell 2006-11-02 17:23:42 UTC
system-config-network needs to preserve the IPv6 localhost entry or add it if missing when dealing with /etc/hosts. In anaconda, we write out: ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 I have not found an RFC indicating what ::1 should be called and different operating systems are using different names. If you find an official naming standard for ::1, let me know so I can make the change to anaconda as well.
Comment 1 Nerijus Baliūnas 2006-11-07 03:02:46 UTC
BTW, FC6 clean install puts only line ::1 server.xxx.lt server localhost.localdomain localhost to /etc/hosts, and because of that some programs don't work. Putting a line 127.0.0.1 server.xxx.lt server localhost.localdomain localhost helps. I unchecked ipv6 support during install. Might be some reversed logic - instead of putting ipv4 addr only, it puts ipv6 addr only.

It's known and has been fixed in anaconda's CVS (rawhide).
