Description Jesse Keating 2009-03-24 01:37:13 EDT
It looks like, at least with network installs, an /etc/hosts file is written to /mnt/sysimage rather early, which conflicts with the hosts file that comes in the setup package, leading to an immediate /etc/hosts.rpmnew

Have a patch to fix this up now.  Attaching it to this bug report if you want to try it out, but also for my own record keeping.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
