Description eric magaoay 2006-05-12 17:36:30 EDT
Description of problem:

When anaconda detect failure in "reverse name lookup", it should prompt VNC
viewer to connect to an IP address instead of a hostname. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-11.1.0.10-1

How reproducible:
persistent

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a VNC installation with the following kickstart config file (ks.cfg):

      vnc
      url --url ftp://192.168.3.101/mysrc/fed/i386
      lang en_US.UTF-8
      keyboard us      
      network --device eth1 --bootproto dhcp --hostname belize3     
      # NOTE assumption: 
      #     network connected to eth1 device card

2. Start the installation, during boot/startup prompt type:

      linux vnc ks=ftp://192.168.3.101/mysrc/fed/ks.cfg

3. The install program will start VNC and ask client to connect to a hostname
(belize3). 

==========  
Starting VNC...

The VNC server is now running.
Please connect to belize3:1 to begin the install...
Starting graphical installation...
===========

4. From VNC viewer PC type:

     vncviewer belize3:1

Actual results:

Error message box shows-
     VNC Viewer: Information
     unable to resolve host by name: Success (0)

Expected results:

     When anaconda detected a failure in "reverse name lookup" it should have
displayed the IP address (192.168.3.13) instead of the hostname (belize3). So
when it start the VNC it should have the following message prompts:

==========  
Starting VNC...

The VNC server is now running.
Please connect to 192.168.3.12:1 to begin the install...
Starting graphical installation...
===========
