Description of problem:
When configuring the network during graphical install, there is an option in the
dialog to set hostname via DHCP or manually. This option exists and is welcome
because many consumer-grade hardware firewall/router/NAT boxes do only DHCP and
not DNS. However, the TEXT installer does not have this option to set the
hostname manually. It should.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Phoebe workstation from CD-ROM in default graphics mode. On the same
dialog as enable DHCP and AtBoot, note the option to set hostname manually.
2. Install Phoebe workstation from CD-ROM in TEXT mode (boot "linux text").
Note that there is no option to set hostname manually. The "Network Config for
eth0" dialog has only Enable DHCP, AtBoot, and DNS addresses.
Actual Results: TEXT install must set hostname after booting the "fully"
Expected Results: TEXT install should have option to set hostname manually,
just like graphics install.
We will consider this request for a future release.
This option exists in our current codebase
