Description of problem:
Using dhclient for dhcp should put an entry like:
in /etc/sysconfig/network.  The first beta worked without this entry, but the
second beta requires it for my DHCP servers.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Use dhclient to get DHCP assigned IP address
2.  The hostname is not propagated unless I put a DHCP_HOSTNAME entry in

Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2002-08-08 16:52:44 UTC
The new behaviour would be correct. The default should be to not send a hostname to the 
DHCP server and to accept whatever hostname it provides - if you want to send a 
hostname to the server (which is needed with some broadband providers) then you need 
to set  DHCP_HOSTNAME explicitly.
