RE: hostname



hi...

does your /etc/hosts file look like:

[root laptop2 ~]# cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.

127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost       laptop2

Thanks for your help but, as I've said in my first mail, I have set up
the name I want here in system-config-network too, but still the system
thinks it's name is localhost.localdomain. Also, I've set up the
correct name in /etc/sysconfig/network. However, the hostname command
still returns localhost.localdomain and the bash prompt still shows
[marcelo localhost ~].
I wonder where does the system get this information.
