i have it figured out:
add a line which looks like this in your etc/hosts file.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost CPE00508d512248-CM014310003069
the long string of random numbers and letters is computer specific you will need to find out yours. also, to edit this file you will need to be root....you could either goto the console andenter the following:
vi etc/hosts (i suggest u enter vi-h to see avilable commands for use with vi)
(the above is a text editor not easy to use unless you know how)
(move to the line you want to edit)
press insert(allows the entering of text(press esc to exit insert mode))
after entering your alterations you must save to do this:
damn i cant remember to save i am just a
ill go and
anyone how to save with vi?
edit: it seems that the alterations are saved on exit so you could alterate and then exit and you are all good!
i know you must:
the dots brings u a command enter mode you use single letters to specify actions
x will exit
anyways i hope this does not
u but i am 2 weeks new to linux.
