Description Andy Lindeberg 2008-09-25 16:57:46 EDT
When networking is started up in loader (a la updates img, or vnc), the hostname prompt comes up empty. When networking is not started in loader, the hostname box is correctly filled in with localhost.localdomain.
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2008-09-29 23:47:00 EDT
This should be working now in rawhide.  At least, I just tested and it appears to be working.  Networking available, anaconda does a lookup on your IP and tries to get a hostname that way.  If that fails, anaconda falls back on 'localhost.localdomain'.
