hostname/domainname in 0.91
Tried a quick install of the 0.91 base just now. So far, so good --
it seems to work well. A couple of comments:
- I've always found it useful to be able to log in while the
install progresses, to check on how much disk space is
available, etc. Surely the inittab could run another getty or
- The hostname command used sets the hostname and domain at the
same time; but it seems to set the hostname to the fully
qualified host+domain eg if my hostname is really ithil, it
will show up as ithil.uct.ac.za. This is wrong, in my opinion.
Slackware, for example, does the right thing, using seperate
hostname / domainname commands. That way, the hostname ends up
as just plain ithil -- the right way (IMHO).
That's all for now...
