Re: [rhelv6-beta-list] No tui network setup on server install



There have been plenty of alleged "idiots" who have had to deal with
countless combinations and support issues when it comes to /etc/hosts
of countless combinations of programs and utilities in the "setup" and
"anaconda" packages over the years.

And most of the time these alleged "idiots" are just engineers and
support individuals dealing with "incorrect," "non-standard" and sometimes
just flat out "broken" assumptions and other coding non-sense in various
applications and utilities.  It's been a continuing and plaguing issue with
IPv6 as well, where the alleged "idiots" are trying to make the system IPv6
ready, and too many other, upstream and ISV components just don't follow
standards.

I.e., there are no "idiots" on this, just people trying to make most things
work, and minimize the "broken."  A quick trip to Anaconda and the history
on this shows a lot of the logic.  If systems were always configured correctly,
if programs always followed standards, this would be a non-issue.

But many systems don't always have proper name resolution, name lookup and
many other aspects, or programs don't always agree on everything the same.

Mind you, I'd still like to have rude words with the idiot who thought
putting the hostname on the '127.0.0.1' line along with the localhost
addresses was a good idea. Put it in another line so it's easier to
edit and manage changes!!!!
