Description Emmanuel Galanos 2002-06-20 07:13:30 EDT
Description of Problem:
Subject says it all. Not really very important bug...
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-06-20 11:45:46 EDT
Is there an RFC specifying a maximum length?
Comment 2 Emmanuel Galanos 2002-06-20 19:45:40 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-31 16:07:44 EDT
I'll look into this next release.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-08-12 17:31:09 EDT
Fixed on development branch.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 14:57:50 EDT
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.
