Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491808
anaconda fights with setup for /etc/hosts file leading to /etc/hosts.rpmnew
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:28:31 EST
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.
Created attachment 336579 [details]
Fix will be in anaconda-184.108.40.206-1 and later.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
