Description skopp 1999-07-07 07:01:55 UTC
Have used linuxconf to change
Have a LAN with inofficial FQDN an so I need the "Dj"
command in to fake my FQDN due to ISP
requirements.  So I did changes on by hand
because linuxconf did not set any "Dj" command in (which is a different issue, I know).
On next reboot, the systems stucks while
executing /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99linuxconf !
If you boot in "single" mode and execute S99linuxconf you
see why: S99linuxconf needs manual input because the was changed by hand!

Workaround: have renamed S99linuxconf to orig-S99linuxconf

Jacques, is this fixed in 1.16r1.3?  This seems to stir a faint
memory of discussion on the linuxconf list...
