Error message when starting


I receive the following message when staring up:

Could not find internet address for aclarion(my username) This will prevent Gnome
from working correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding "aclarion"
to the file /etc/host

Start anyway or try again.

What does this mean?

Rick

But yes you can use the system with no problem...just pinging your hostname won't work until you update /etc/hosts The update is real time so as soon as you save it it become effective.
