> hostname ganymede
Yep, that worked it changed the hostname to "ganymede".
However during login I get;
"could not look up internet address for ganymede. This will prevent Gnome from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding ganymede to /ete/hosts.
I logged in anyway and checked /etc/hosts:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
#127.0.0.1 ganymede.com localhost
The 2nd line was added automatically.... but shouldn't the 1st lined be remmed out instead of the new one? Or is the 1st one always necessary?
I tried rebooting and came back to the login screen. The hostname has changed back to localhost.localdomain again. logging in gives me the same message. The /etc/hosts is the same except is:
#127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
127.0.0.1 ganymede.com localhost
The only action was the above. Maybe I should use redhat-config-network.
