I've tried loads of different things, searched Google and other forums but nothing seems to work. Everytime I log in, I'm faced with the same thing:
could not look up internet address for x1-6-00-02-e3-0b-39-3f This may prevent GNOME from operating correctly.....
I've tried opening a terminal and typing su to go to root, then typing hostname localhost. It changes if I close then reopen the terminal, but when I log out, it goes back to how it was.
I've changed my hosts file in /etc/hosts to read:
127.0.0.1 localhost@locaoldomain localhost
I've tried 127.0.0.1 x1-6-00-02-e3-0b-39-3f localhost
I'm really stuck now.
Could someone please tell me how to set it up please?
I'm using Fedora Core 2 and have also tried adding it to the network setup. It doesn't even register there. lol
I do have my own domain names registered and they point to my IP, but I'm happy enough to have it say localhost at the bottom of the login screen rather than x1-6-00-02-e3-0b-39-3f
Many thanks and sorry about this. I know it's probably sometjhing that's been asked time and time again.
