Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 881923
initscripts: migration to /etc/hostname, /etc/vconsole.conf, /etc/locale.conf
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:32:44 EDT
Fedora is migrating away from:
/etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
See the tracker bug 881785 for details.
./initscripts-9.42/setsysfont uses /etc/sysconfig/i18n.
./initscripts-9.42/sysconfig.txt talking about /etc/sysconfig/network:
HOSTNAME=<fqdn by default, but whatever hostname you want>
./initscripts-9.42/sysconfig.txt talks about /etc/sysconfig/i18n, /etc/sysconfig/keyboard. Describes /etc/sysconfig/i18n as a valid fallback for /etc/vconsole.conf, but the plan is to remove the support for it completely.
Please update the package for the new config files.
I think we can drop setsysfont entirely, it was used in rc.sysinit.
Done in git. Currently, it still reads /etc/sysconfig/i18n if locale.conf doesn't exist at all. Should it?
initscripts-9.42.1-1.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 initscripts-9.42.1-1.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).

I would prefer fallback paths like this to go away entirely throughout the distro.
OK. Will add that change on master.
initscripts-9.42.1-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
