Description ted 1999-10-08 07:15:04 UTC
Hi !

It would be nice to be able to give a name to the machine
(even if it's a standalone machine) with the graphical
installation software as it is possible with the text
installation package.
As a matter of fact X11, screensaver and GNOME complain when
no name is specified. It's still possible to give a name by
using linuxconf but this does not solve the problem (People
logged in the machine under X11 are then not registered and
recognized)

Issue is resolved in the latest installer available in beta.
