Squid does not want to start: "... fully qualified domain name...".

Squid does not want to start: "... fully qualified domain name...".
Hostname was set to 'localhost' by default, then I changed it to 'localhost.localdomain' and it still does not want to work.
My computer is standalone system (no network)and I installed Squid on it for studying purposes only.
Also postfix didn't want to start saying the same thing about hostname 'localhost', but with 'localhost.localdomain' it works good.

Sorry for my English, it is not as good, as I want it to be.

Which distro of linux ya using? If Mandrake, you can configures it using Webmin. It's easy to use if ya wanta manage squid.

Another method would be insert the hostname into squid.conf file. Insert this line at bottom of the file will do:-

visible_hostname myserver

You dont have to put in the "." such as Hope this helps
