Description Ilja Kogan 2005-06-13 16:18:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-2

Description of problem:
When doing a fresh install of FC4 the installer does not give a chance to choose a hostname for the computer, but chooses a default name "noname", but does not include it in /etc/hosts, so GNOME is giving everytime you log-in an error. For newbies this might be quite confusing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fresh install FC4
2.log in to gnome

Actual Results:  Warning about the hostname not being written to /etc/hosts

Expected Results:  I should have been asked during the install for a hostname or noname should be placed in /etc/hosts
