local variable 'hostname' referenced before assignment
machine is configured for networking via DHCP with assigned hostname - if that
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).
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.
