Description dpawluk 2000-08-01 08:01:12 UTC
in "networking/client tasks/basic host information/host name" dialog the
field "host name + domain" is too short and doesn't horizontal scroll
resulting in the truncation of hostname.  the same thing occurs in 
"Adapter n" field "primary name + domain". the fields appear to be 30 chars
i have observed the same behaviour in all other version 1.19 of linuxconf
whether you use the tree menu or not.

This is fixed in linuxconf-1.19r2-1.i386.rpm (the field scrolls), but if you
make your hostname very long (like
linuxconf will segfault when starting. Only way to get it functional is to vi
/etc/sysconfig/network and shorten your hostname.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 16:20:17 UTC
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
