Description David Woodhouse 2006-02-27 08:24:36 EST
Upgrading from FC4 to FC5t3 stomped on /etc/sysconfig/network and
/etc/nsswitch.conf, which meant that I fell off the NIS domain and name
resolution stopped working -- it seems that if your nsswitch.conf contains

hosts: files nis nisplus dns

then you get 'No such file or directory' when trying to look up any host name.

This on ppc64?
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-02-27 14:16:02 EST
Nah. One of my few remaining i386 boxen. It ate /etc/hosts too.
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2006-02-28 16:07:21 EST
Were rpmsave/rpmnew files generated at all? Can you attach the upgrade.log, etc.
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2006-02-28 16:40:32 EST
Created attachment 125425 [details]

Upgrade log -- it's hades.cambridge.redhat.com, so you ought to be able to poke
further at it yourself if you need more.

still present in rawhide of 2006-03-12.
/etc/hosts is overwritten, /etc/sysconfig/network is overwritten
