Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230113
system-config-network removes comments from /etc/hosts
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:07 EDT
I use /etc/hosts to redirect traffic for some domainname to different IP
addresses of our beta testing environment. This means that my hosts file
usually looks like this:
Several entries redirecting the same domainname to different IP addresses with
only one (or even none) active. Unfortunately system-config-network removes all
entries which are currently not active (commented) from the hosts file.
system-config-network-1.4.7-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update system-config-network'
system-config-network-1.4.7-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
