Description Daniel Roesen 2001-03-20 11:22:37 EST
When installing with static hostname and IP setup, the installed system
will use a hostname of "localhost.localdomain" instead of the FQDN entered
while installing. I guess it has something to do with the installer being
unable to reach the designated nameserver(s) to do a reverse lookup because
of lack of ethernet connectivity while installing.

Hm, I'm not sure I understand you correctly. Do you consider that behaviour a
bug or not?

IMNSHO asking for a hostname and then subsequently ignoring it completely _is_ a
bug, especially with static network setup.
