Installer should ask the user for the name of the machine installed rather than "localhost" at every installation. This name should be stored in /etc/hostname This name should be preserved by updates (nowadays, it is sometimes erased) This name should be know by the local network
Question : does it make sense to do as well with "localdomain". I have no answer.
Why it would be good for Mageia to include it
Because others distribs do it. Even Raspbian. Because Mageia machines on local network/ Attached Devices are shown only with their IP address. Because it is clearer and simplier for users on a local network with multiple Mageia machines.
After installation, verify the name appears on the local netwok manager / Attached Devices. After installation, verify the name is stored in /etc/hostname and (maybe elsewhere it shoud be) Verify the name is preserved after kernel updates.
