Description of problem:
After first install and logging in as root I was able to setup and use Mozilla
and Iximian. I changed the name of my server and then couldn't access anything
on the web. So I did a swipe of the hard disk and tried to reinstall. Yet I
couldn't access the internet after dialing in. It couldn't resolve any
addresses? What gives?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Configure Internet Dialup, logon.
3.Tour internet and download email.
4.Change you server host name.
6.Start Mozilla and try to go somewhere.
7.No host are resolved.
8.Wipe hard disk and re-install.
9.Set up internet dialup and mail.
10.Connect and try to go anywhere in Mozilla or download email.
Actual Results: It can't reslove hostnames and won't download email.
Expected Results: Install RH and set up internet dialup and email accounts.
And be able to surf and read mail. Change localhost.localhost to
office.cdswest.com and then when accessing the web still be able to surf and
read mail. It didn't happen. When I reformat all the partitions i expect a
clean install to be done. However, when I tried to access the web after
setting the dialup and mail settings again I could dial in but then I couldn't
resolve any hosts!
There isn't anywhere to set up the server name during the installation phase?
Why was this deleted from the installation sequence? That should be one of the
first thing it recognizes when setting up the software.
what does /etc/resolv.conf contain before and after you dialin to the internet?
Please check that "Automatically obtain DNS information from provider" is
checked within the dialout device configuration dialog of redhat-config-network.
