On my RH7.0 box the easiest way to change it is by running
linuxconf. It's under Networking, Client Tasks, Basic Host
Also, an addition to /etc/hosts something like this:
127.0.0.1 hostname localhost.localdomain localhost
replacing hostname for whatever you wish.
On Tue, 12 Jun 2001 James Cooper didst pronounce:
:How do i change my hostname?
:I have a non-networked redhat 6.1 pc. I tried changing the contents of the
:/etc/HOSTNAME file but it keeps being changed back to
:localhost.localdomain. I don't have the netcfg program installed as i dont
:need it. What to do?
