Description Karl F. Larsen 2001-12-17 16:59:51 EST
Description of Problem:Using the 7.2 system network configuration I entered
the data of host: Daisy and ip and rebooted. The ethernet card
came up fine, the computer name changed to Daisy as desired, but dial-up
network and sendmail were broken. I redid dial-up network and it now works
well but sendmail takes 3 minutes to load and the same time to send an
e-mail. I added Daisy and to /etc/mail/access and made access.md
which sendmail can read. But it has no effect!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Just set up a ethernet card.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up an ethernet card
2. reboot
3. notice sendmail takes 3 minutes to load.

With a Red Face I report finding the problem. You must use a complete URL
address for the ethernet/network card. I had just used Daisy. 

So went to the file /etc/hosts and where there was  Daisy I added:    Daisy.dog       Daisy

and sendmail and the ethernet card are happy.
