Description of problem:
When I installed Wherewolf (Fedora 8), I chose to set a static IP address. I specified at install 192.168.2.100.
When the install completed and the system rebooted, it took an inordinate amount of time to boot. It had paused at sendmail and sendmail-client startup.
When I brought up the network manager (system-config-network), I found that the hosts listing had the following address set for my hostname:
220.127.116.11, which is actually nxdomain.guide.opendns.com.
After I manually edited the listing to put the correct IP address in place, things were back to normal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start install from Fedora 8 DVD
2. When Networking questions start, specify static vice dynamic address
3. Continue installation
Upon reboot, the wrong IP address was in the hosts listing
The correct IP address should have been in the hosts listing
This was reproduced over two installations, the first, which I later messed up, and the reinstall.
Unable to reproduce with the Fedora 9 Preview release or rawhide. When I enter a static IP address, the
system is set to that address on reboot.
