Created attachment 106371 [details]
local variable 'hostname' referenced before assignment

machine is configured for networking via DHCP with assigned hostname - if that

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-11-10 17:18:14 UTC
Interesting... Did you get any errors about hardware
profile failing to run? 

Curious why it never set hostname for this case.

A fix for that case is added to up2date-4.3.57 (those
screens are in the up2date package).

Comment 3 das_deniz 2004-11-10 18:13:30 UTC
well, not that i noticed. the bootup seemed clean (never kicked out of
the graphical mode once that started).

i dunno. as i mentioned, during install i set eth0 use dhcp and set
the hostname manually instead of letting it be dhcp assigned. that's
all i know that i did related to hostname.

Closing out.  Please reopen if the problem is still present with recent code.
