Read the entire story here

After a text mode install from ISO's on another partition, I have no network
devices configured.  Within redhat-config-network I added my 8139too ethernet
device.  At this point look at the Hosts tab and you will see it is blank.  
After I clicked "Activate" then "Yes", /etc/hosts becomes blank.

I can also reproduce this every time after removing the device and re-adding.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Phoebe redhat-config-network-1.1.86-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with no devices in redhat-config-network
2. Add 8139too device
3. Look at Hosts tab, it is blank.
4. Click activate
5. Look at /etc/hosts, it is blank.

Confirmed using neat to set-up my network drivers - a 3c503 and airo wireless.

After setting up in neat, my /etc/hosts is now blank.

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2003-01-14 13:27:52 EST
Warren, do these new packages work out a little better for you?
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2003-01-16 23:37:38 EST
I just tested redhat-config-network-1.1.90-1 and rhpl-0.75-1 from Rawhide.  It
seems to work properly now.
