Description of problem:
Im not sure which component this error is related to. If you could
assign it to the right component I would appreciate it.
When I start up under gnome I get the following error message:
Could not look up internet address for dhcp-109-21.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding
dhcp-109-21 to the file /etc/hosts.
I am on a standard cable modem connection using DHCP assigned address.
My address starts with ool and not dhcp if i look at the ip I was
assigned and it changes every so often to another ip but always starts
I also notice the dhcp on the bottom right of the login screen before
gnome loads up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Login using default Gnome Desktop
assigning to gnome
We really should figure out if resolving the local hostname is really
required, and if it is we should fix the networking subsystem so it
I also get this problem. I added what the error message was telling me
to /etc/hosts but nothing changed I still sometimes get this annoying
message when I start fedora.

security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
