Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 881785
TRACKER: migration to /etc/hostname, /etc/vconsole.conf, /etc/locale.conf
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:42:43 EDT
One of the goals of systemd is standardization between Linux distributions.
This effort applies to configuration such as: the system hostname,
console keyboard layout, console font, locale settings.
Previously these had to be configured using distribution-specific config files.
In the case of Fedora they were:
/etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
systemd supports configuration files, which work on all distributions
using systemd and even on some other distributions:
All the new config files are documented in manual pages:
hostname(5), vconsole.conf(5), locale.conf(5)
For more information about the standardization effort in general see:
The new config files have been used in Fedora for a couple of releases already.
Not all packages have been ported though, leading to inconsistency and confusion.
We must finish this porting effort to the new config files. This is a tracker bug for this purpose.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
