Agghh! hostname in Woody install
I've been running Redhat 7.3, and I'm trying to install Woody instead.
I have 7 CDs labeled "Woody Binaries v3.0r0 i386" a friend burned for
I boot on CD 1, and install, use tselect to pick X86, GUI desktop, and a
few other tasks. The installation proceeds, reboots, I get a GUI.
I've been through the install several times, I fill in the name of my
machine when asked during the install, but it never shows up. There is
never a 'hosts' file in /etc, although there are 'hosts.allow' and
'hosts.deny' files (apparently set up in response to leafnode
I am installing entirely from the CDs. I have a cable modem, but it's
not connected as I need to install the software before I can configure
the firewall and tripwire to connect up safely.
Does anyone have any idea why I can't get a hostname installed? I've
tried creating the 'hosts' file, but it doesn't get used.
What gives? I can't proceed until this is resolved.
Thanks in advance,
