Description Enrico Scholz 2000-12-27 06:42:42 EST
The hostname entered in the network-configuration screen (both server and
workstation setup), does not take effect. E.g. I entered `test.test' as
hostname but the system is still known as `localhost.localdomain':

$ hostname

Assigning to a developer.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2000-12-28 15:57:35 EST
Do you have any network devices on the computer?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2000-12-29 01:22:59 EST
I am unable to reproduce this on our latest internal builds.
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2000-12-29 06:47:13 EST
Yes, I have two network devices. An ethernet-card and an ISDN adapter.
