    Description:


    This collective update for YaST's Network Configuration
    module (yast2-network) provides the following fixes:

    *

    AutoYaST: if keep_install_network=true and
    dns/write_hostname is unspecified, use the product default
    (which is false on SLES), thus not writing 127.0.0.2 to
    /etc/hosts. This fixes a regression introduced in 2.17.166.
    (bnc#796580)

    *

    AutoYaST: write /etc/hosts even if
    keep_install_network=true. (bnc#796580)

    *

    Improve filtering of devices that can be enslaved to
    bond interfaces on s390. (bnc#719881)

    *

    Initialize s390 specific device variables when
    configuring the device for the first time and when
    switching between interfaces. (bnc#747844)

    *

    Write bonding configuration correctly when setting up
    interfaces through YaPI. (bnc#790219)

    *

    Address a lost configuration problem when a VLAN
    device is used together with a bridge. (bnc#790202)

    *

    Refresh nscd's host cache after network settings are
    changed. (bnc#779531)
