Description Oeslei 2012-12-31 13:40:00 UTC
When you install Freebsd 9.0 the system asks you which is the hostname and domain however the installer does not add such information in the file "/etc/hosts." It would be interesting that this information was added to the hosts file. I discovered a "segmentation fault" in the package prelude-lml due to lack of such information in the hosts file, maybe this error can occur in other packages. Adding this information during the installation process would avoid this kind of problem.


add the hostname and domain in "/etc/hosts" file.
