NetworkManager ifcfg-rh persistent hostname not found

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – F18: The ifcfg-rh plugin in NetworkManager is supposed to pick up the persistent hostname from the traditional settings file: /etc/sysconfig/network. (The HOSTNAME= variable) This seemed to be working OK in F17. But my first F18 comes up localhost, even though HOSTNAME= is set in /etc/sysconfig/network. In /var/log/messages I can see ifcfg-rh parsing the sysconfig/network-scripts/*cfg configuration files. It is picking up the correct other information (static IP, netmask, dns, etc.) from there. I tried adding the keyfile plugin and the hostname to NetworkManager.conf: [main] plugins (HowTos)
