Description Moritz Barsnick 2007-11-16 22:33:55 UTC
Description of problem:
After a fresh install, it seems firstboot failed to ensure that my host gets a 
hostname. I recall I was queried for network info and left the DHCP option 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8 initial release version.

How reproducible:
Only tried once.

Actual results:
The host is named localhost.localdomain or something like that, bash prompt 
with "noneset" or something like that.

Additional info:
I'm seeing a lot of peculiar stuff, this may be the cause of some of that.

firstboot's network configuration module only appears if you are running in
reconfig mode.  Perhaps what you're seeing here is that the installer didn't set
networking up correctly?

Comment 2 Moritz Barsnick 2007-11-17 20:23:03 UTC
Either this was a problem with my install medium (I had other problems, such as 
bug #387791), or I just missed the point in anaconda's initial install.

A fresh install shows no such problem.

Sorry for the noise. -> Closed.
