Description Kay Sievers 2012-11-30 08:29:04 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:
 lxc-fedora.in: cat <<EOF > ${rootfs_path}/etc/sysconfig/network

Please update the package for the new config files.

The old files are converted and deleted from the system at update time.
If reading the old files is still supported, please make sure they are
never created again.

Thanks!

The LXC Fedora template only references /etc/sysconfig/network and not the others.  The upstream template now supports both /etc/hostname and HOSTNAME= in /etc/sysconfig/network but a discrepancy has been pointed out to me.  Specification for /etc/hostname is that it's a simple name and can contain no dots.  But the HOSTNAME= was an FQDN.  Where did the FQDN migrate to or is the information on /etc/hostname incorrect (as it appears)?

Not sure why this would be a blocker, other than supporting /etc/hostname, which upstream currently does since 1.0.0.
