Fails to set hostname after install
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
NFS install using bootnet.img. During the install I gave it the IP address,
netmask, gateway and DNS address. It printed out that reverse lookup
suceeded (on VT 4 I think), however on rebooting it sets the hostname
to localhost.localdomain. A quick look in /etc/sysconfig/network shows
However, running hostname at the shell prompt returns the correct value.
It's was on VT 3 that it printed 'reverse name lookup worked' (not 4)
hmmm ... I cannot reproduce this problem in test here trying both TUI and GUI
modes over NFS ...
does this also occur in beta2 ...?
are you trying to install onto a laptop ...?
No, this is not a laptop. I'll check if beta2 has the same problem next week.
Beta2 has the same problem. /etc/sysconfig/network still reads
This was a full KDE install (no upgrade etc...) via NFS. I entered the IP
address into the text portition, when the GUI starts it has the correct
IP and hostname present. However on reboot it prints:
Setting Hostname localhost.localdomain [OK]
did you still have this problem with any of the later betas (pinstripe, RC-1,
(this problem was originally reported against the Winston beta1)
I don't know, I didn't do any testing after beta3.
