What exactly does not work now? What setting (on actual system, not in

It's likely package leafnode won't work without a FQDN.

"Domain Name" field in YaST has very little to do with FQDN.

OK. It's what I did back in about 13.1 days in order to get leafnode to work.
And I did it again with a 15.0 fresh install despite problems I don't remember
with Yast, referenced in this thread. For all my trouble I get the log

May 07 03:18:24 nscd[1184]: 1184 monitored file `/etc/
resolv.conf` was written to


May 07 03:18:24 NetworkManager[31378]: nisdomainname: you
must be root to change the domain name

And I did it in earlier days (2000 onward?) where the complaint was that you
shouldn't be assigning yourself a domain name that's not registered with DNS.

My recollection of how it was all supposed to work is pretty vague, and it's
gotten a bit more complex since then. I don't think I ever had a complete
solution, but the idea is to preserve flexibility, so a computer can be part
of a LAN, or part of the internet, or both; can use multiple interfaces, etc.

What should I be doing?
