Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 881913
hostname: migration to /etc/hostname, /etc/vconsole.conf, /etc/locale.conf
Last modified: 2012-12-06 02:23:01 EST
Fedora is migrating away from:
/etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
See the tracker bug 881785 for details.
We found in hostname/hostname.1:
The host name is usually set once at system startup in
(normally by reading the contents of a file which contains
the host name, e.g.
.IR /etc/sysconfig/network ).
This isn't correct anymore. rc.sysinit does not exist. The hostname is set by systemd itself. And it's read from /etc/hostname.
Please update the package for the new config files.
hostname-3.11-3.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing hostname-3.11-4.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
hostname-3.11-4.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
