customize hostname at install time

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


IN the automatic configuration mode at install time you cannot specify the hostname... -- which by the way is displayed in your kde menu and of course in the konsole... I find this despicable on aesthetic grounds... 

Now putting the joke aside I find it strange to give the user the choice to decide what encryption method to use (as a brainless option) but changing the name of the computer to be considered as advanced...

I know you can do it by choosing a manual configuration... but for a normal user that may prove a little bit challenging to have to decide on a lot of other things in order just to choose a lousy name for his computer.,

How to set hostname is one of the FAQs on IRC and other support platforms. So I agree very much that it would be desirable to have this easily done during installation - even when using auto configuration.

as is a non-sense to ask it for 11.3 rather than marking it invalid please move it for the next version of opensuse... I also know that a simple thing like this may need a lot of changes under the bonnet... but I really think it is worthy of my tuppenies...

I believe I have seen it during the installation of Tumbleweed. It should be in the next Leap release, too.

Yes, actually the feature is in openSUSE and done. Also see https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Linuxrc for the "hostname" option.
