Assuming this bug is about redhat-config-network, so reassigning.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-28 05:40:59 EST
hostname has to be a valid hostname, which sendmail can resolve, if it is activated.
The message redhat-config-network provided, which hints you to file a bug here,
is the interesting one!
