Description Jay Turner 2002-08-13 15:24:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
With redhat-config-network-1.1.15-1, when you are adding an ethernet connection,
on the third screen of that process (Configure Network Settings) there's a
dialog box at the top of the screen for hostname, then there's another dialog
box under the DHCP settings heading.  If you enter a hostname into the box at
the top of the screen, then it will get written to both the
/etc/sysconfig/network file (as it should) as well as the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file, as an option to pass up to the
DHCP server.  This seems wrong to me, as I didn't enter the hostname into the
DHCP settings section.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-08-14 06:30:21 EDT
you are right... removed the upper "Hostname" entry

/etc/sysconfig/network:HOSTNAME should be set in the main dialog in the DNS tab.

fixed in CVS
