Description Doug Ledford 2006-08-22 15:16:36 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure dhcp with option dns-domain "domain1 domain2";
2. Attempt install that uses network and dhcp configuration
Actual results: Anaconda goes into an infinite loop that you can't break out of

Expected results: Reverse host name lookup should succeed and proceed from there

Additional info: The syntax for dns-domain that is listed above, while not
strictly correct, is handy for passing a complete search list of domains to dhcp
clients instead of a single domain.  This syntax works 100% under Fedora Core
once the installation is done, it only fails under anaconda.  Mac OS X doesn't
quite handle it right, but oh well.  Windows XP is hard to tell, I'm not sure it
ever uses domain search information from the dhcp server.

This problem was fixed in libdhcp-1.16.
