Description Daniel Roesen 2001-03-20 16:22:37 UTC
When installing with static hostname and IP setup, the installed system
will use a hostname of "localhost.localdomain" instead of the FQDN entered

unable to reach the designated nameserver(s) to do a reverse lookup because
of lack of ethernet connectivity while installing.

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