[opensuse] Why does yast use 127.0.0.2 for localhost?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


Everytime I use YaST to configure the network, it adds this line to
/etc/hosts:

127.0.0.2 Telcontar.valinor Telcontar


That line provokes postfix into failure - one message per minute in
the logs:

.... fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for
127.0.0.2

and has to be deleted manually every time. Notice that I have this:

127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.1.14 Telcontar.valinor Telcontar



What's the use of 127.0.0.2, why does yast insist on creating it? Why
not 127.0.0.1?

What is wrong that postfix does not work with it?

Is this a bug somewhere, or did I configure something wrong?
