I also encountered this with the installation of F7T2.  I manually configured
the hostname during the installation, and after the first boot, the hostname was

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-06 13:04:52 UTC
did you even run system-config-network or is this an anaconda installation bug?

Comment 3 Fred New 2007-03-06 13:12:25 UTC
I was wondering about whether this bug was assigned correctly...  I didn't run
system-config-network.  So I'm assuming that Gerry didn't either.

Comment 4 Gerry Tool 2007-03-06 14:39:09 UTC
I could not recall the sequence of what I had done earlier, so this morning, I
did a fresh install.  This time I did this right after first boot:

[gerry@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost gerry]# rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/sysconfig/network
file /etc/sysconfig/network is not owned by any package
[root@localhost gerry]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network
[root@localhost gerry]# system-config-network
Bonobo accessibility support initialized
GTK Accessibility Module initialized
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/rhpl/ DeprecationWarning: raising a
string exception is deprecated
  raise FileMissing, self.filename + ' does not exist.'

[root@localhost gerry]# 

Content of Hosts pane in Network Configuration gui screen
IP		Name			Aliases	f7t2new localhost.localdomain localhost
::1		localhost6.localdomain6	localhost6

[root@localhost gerry]# cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.      f7t2new localhost.localdomain
::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
[root@localhost gerry]# 

The 'yes' is extraneous, put there by some program, but I have no way of knowing
if this is the cause of the hostname not being set to the value entered during

It was not clear to me which component to assign this bug to.  Harald probably
has a clear understanding, so please reassign as appropriate.

Comment 5 Gerry Tool 2007-03-06 14:46:19 UTC
I forgot to run hostname in the above post.

Here it is:
[root@localhost gerry]# hostname
[root@localhost gerry]# 

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-06 14:48:29 UTC
I think this is an installer bug
