Description Leonard den Ottolander 2004-08-10 13:12:27 EDT
Anaconda and boot.iso as of 2004-08-09, assuming this is

On my small home network I do only use an external DNS. Thus when
doing an NFS/FTP/HTTP installation I do not enter a primary nameserver
in the "Configure TCP/IP". Still anaconda is trying to look up the
host name for the machine. Since there is no DNS server providing the
machine with a name this fails. You could thus save the time spent
searching by skipping this step and setting a default host name.

Guess this needs to be fixed in loader2/net.c. Maybe loaderData->noDns
is not set if the DNS string is empty?
