Description Ken Crandall 1999-10-22 10:12:22 EDT
When performing an install, if DHCP is selected for network
configuration, the machine name received from the DHCP
server is hardcoded into /etc/sysconfig/network.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-10-22 12:24:59 EDT
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.
Comment 2 Derek Tattersall 2000-04-25 09:31:59 EDT
The hostname DHCP assigns during the install is hard coded into
/etc/sysconfig/network in the 6.2 installer also.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-13 11:56:59 EST
Is this for a TUI or GUI install?
Comment 4 Erik Troan 2000-11-20 11:26:41 EST
We had people ask for this behavior, so I'm not changing it. We'll never make
everyone happy anyway.
