Description Michal Schmidt 2012-11-29 13:45:15 EST
Fedora is migrating away from:
 /etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
 /etc/sysconfig/i18n
to:
 /etc/hostname
 /etc/vconsole.conf
 /etc/locale.conf

See the tracker bug 881785 for details.

We found in hostname/hostname.1:
  The host name is usually set once at system startup in
  .I /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
  (normally by reading the contents of a file which contains
  the host name, e.g.
  .IR /etc/sysconfig/network ).

This isn't correct anymore. rc.sysinit does not exist. The hostname is set by systemd itself. And it's read from /etc/hostname.

Please update the package for the new config files.
