Hostfile screwed after Yast

Hi guys,

I have a system that runs on Linux Suse 7.3 prof. with several network cards. If I change the IP address with Yast of one of the network cards, my hosts file (etc/host) is screwed up! And I need to change the IP address often.

I already have been to Suse website and couldn`t find anything about this issue in the support database.....

Hmmmmmmm very strange... maybe I didn`t search well?!? Who have experience with this and can give me some tips or links to solve/workaround this issue.

Thanks.

Michael.

Hi Michael88,

I'm afraid that I know next to nothing about *nix based configurations :)... but hopefully this *bump* will grab the attention of someone who does!

A solution would be to skip over Yast and edit /etc/network/interfaces directly, and then run 'ifdown eth[n]; ifup eth[n]'. I don't know how well will Yast like it, though.
