[hardy] sudo unable to resolv hostname

Bug #188424 reported by boskicinek
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sudo (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Hi, I recently installed Hardy Heron Alpha 3. During the install I changed hostname to, say, "myhostname". After reboot I wasn't able to use sudo, because it was giving me error: unable to resolv hostname. My problem, and solution is identical to this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/9471, except the mentioned one is from 2005 and is closed as fixed.

I did the same thing one time.
Advice: You should NEVER change your hostname DURING an install.

What "solution" did you use to resolve this (from the bug you mentioned)?

Changed in sudo:
status: New → Incomplete
