Description Brian Murphy 2006-05-19 22:30:53 UTC
This is similar to bug 61 but that bug seems pretty old.  When installing in 
Solaris 9 (with the following supporting software) the installation stops 
when initializing namespace.  Solution was provided by the help forum.  
Instead of using a CNAME (in my case parrot) or fully qualified DNS name 
( for the hostname, the install hangs.  When 
using 'localhost' as the hostname, the install goes fine.

Please include all of the lines below when reporting installation problems.
