I've looked on a couple boards for fixes for this problem, but thus far none of the code posted by people is right.
Whenever I startup a user account, be it root or not, I get the following error: "could not look up internet address, which is preventing gnome from operating correctly, to try and fix problem add CPEOOO255a5214b-CM00e06f175ca0 to /etc/hosts"
So, I went online, found a couple boards that posted the following lines to add:
and then later someone said they had to 'add an alias', whatever that means and posted the following code:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
I copy/pasted these directly into the /etc/hosts file, but it didn't fix anything. What am I doing wrong? Should I not have the parts?
