Bug#610526: Preseed: Debian Installer ignores hostname parameter

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20090123lenny8
Severity: normal


i have added the following lines to the file "isolinux/txt.cfg", but the
Debian Installer ignores the hostname parameter.

label basic
        menu label ^Install basic
        kernel /install.386/vmlinuz
        append  auto=true priority=critical vga=791
initrd=/install.386/initrd.gz file=/cdrom/preseed/basic.cfg
DEBCONF_DEBUG=5 hostname=basic -- quiet

After the installation the hostname is set to "unassigned-hostname".

This Problem only exists with the current lenny release (5.0.7). It
worked with earlier releases and the daily squeeze build.

Regards, Dennis
