bash$ sudo rpm -U --force sh-utils-2.0-1.sparc.rpm
krusty:/D/6.1/sparc 687 bash$ hostid

krusty:/D/6.1/sparc 688 bash$ sudo rpm -U --force
util-linux-2.9v-20.sparc.rpm

The sparc-only hostid in util-linux is a dinky shell script
that at least returns the same hostid as the equivalent
Solaris command. Dunno what the sh-utils hostid is about.

assigned to jbj :-)

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-26 18:51:59 UTC
Fixedi (by renaming hostid to sunhostid) in util-linux-2.9w-21.
