Description Steingold, Sam 1999-04-28 17:35:00 UTC
DOMAINNAME set in /etc/sysconfig/network is ignored in
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.  The following patch fixes the
problem:

--- /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit        Wed Apr 28 13:32:46 1999

$NISDOMAIN
  else

  fi

  if [ -f /fsckoptions ]; then

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-28 18:00:59 UTC
why would you want to set the NIS domain name if you
aren't using NIS?

Comment 2 Steingold, Sam 1999-04-28 18:08:59 UTC
allright, make it dnsdomainname, not domainname.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-28 21:43:59 UTC
You can't set the dnsdomainname. (see the man page...)
