Prompt for Computer Name during installation

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed

Description

No problems or any errors durning installation but missing "Prompt for PC name"
causing a "funny name" to be assigned.

A name like "linux-5thc" does not make sense.
The "preffered name by user choice" should by "prompted"

The hostname is easily changed by amending the network configuration, is there really a need for an explicit prompt?

A hostname can be easily changed by editing the name in /etc/HOSTNAME -- very easy.

In that case it is no problem to ask for the computer name during installation ;)
