Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67123
No length checking on hostname in net config screen.
Last modified: 2006-04-24 14:57:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
Subject says it all. Not really very important bug...
Is there an RFC specifying a maximum length?
I can't find any RFC. SUSv2 says 255 bytes. Linux 2.4 has a limit of 64 bytes
in the kernel (kernel/sys.c:sys_sethostname). 64 is a good number.
I'll look into this next release.
Fixed on development branch.
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
