s-c-n resets hostname un-necessarily
Last modified: 2008-12-16 07:20:09 EST
Description of problem:
When s-c-n starts, it seems to read the system's hostname as
localhost.localname, even if a different hostname is set in sysconfig/network or
by dhcp. When any network changes are committed, the hostname is changed to
localhost.localdomain, potentially breaking sudo, X and any other
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run s-c-n
2. Look at the dns settings. Host should be localhost.localdomain
3. Add a network interface or anything else that requires saving settings
4. Save settings and close s-c-n
5. Run hostname.
Hostname should be original value unless explicitly changed in s-c-n
Hostname is localhost.localdomain
This was reported to me by someone else and I then verified it, so it's not just
Upgraded to 1.3.99-1. Problem persists.
s-c-network looks in /etc/sysconfig/network.
I cannot reproduce it...
I'm seeing it on my up2dated beta1 install and have had reports of it on RC2,
but I've also heard from someone running RC5 who has does not see the problem,
so hopefully whatever it was has been fixed.
Has this been verified and can be closed according to comment #3?
Read ya, Phil
