sendmail startup delay problem

I have fc7 installed inside vmware. Everytime I start fc7, I see several minutes of delay when sendmail (and sm-client) is starting up.

Here is my /etc/hosts file:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost6
192.168.0.66 fedora-vmware

What is the problem?

Here is the syslog:

sendmail wants to see a FQDN in /etc/hosts

see http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...d.php?t=127163 for the solution

you either remove the 192.168.0.66 line and add the hostname 'fedora-vmware' to the 127.0.0.1 line (lmo's solution) or you edit the 192.168.0.66 line to include fedora-vmware.localdomain (if the domain name shown in /etc/sysconfig/network is different to localdomain then use that)

If your ip is allocated via dhcp and may change lmo's solution in that thread may be safer.

I modified /etc/hosts file like this:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 fedora-vmware localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 fedora-vmware localhost.localdomain localhost
#192.168.0.66 fedora-vmware

And now sendmail and sm-client starts up without any delay. Thanks.
