Package: debian-installer
Version: Debian Installer Sarge Test Candidate 1

I installed Debian sarge using the boot cd with the debian sarge installer 
tc1. I skipped the network configuration part of the installer because my 
network card is being used behind an adsl modem for connecting via PPPOE. 
So no need to give an IP address to the card. The installation went 
perfectly and my system is running fine as far as I'm not connected to 
Internet. As soon as I get a connection via PPPOE, the application 
(particulary KDE one) are very slow to start. It appeared that a lot of 
dns query are done unsucessfully. I was able to fix the problem by adding 
the line

my_hostname 127.0.0.1

in the /etc/hosts file and by adding the two following lines

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback 

in the /etc/network/interfaces file (it was completely empty before). I wonder if the installer should 
not be responsible of doing that. Even if no network configuration was 
done, a loopback interface should be created, shouldn't it?
