I get this error on upgrading from:
Release 3.1.3_GA_474.SuSEES9_20060609153405 SuSEES9 NETWORK edition
to 3.1.4. So this is a box that has been working (ok, except for the purge thing.. which led me to the upgrade).
Now the box says the /etc/hosts is broken. When I `hostname`, I get mail.xxxxxx.com. When I ping it, dig it from another server... Everything is fine with dns, from other servers. On the box itself I have no problem.
The exact error is:
Any help? my /etc/hosts looks just like that?
ERROR: Installation can not proceeed. Please fix your /etc/hosts file

<FQHN> is the FULLY QUALIFIED host name, and
<HN> is the (optional) hostname-only portion
