hostname keeps changing

i'm using slackware 7.1 kernel 2.4.27
i dunno why but the hostname keeps changing... here's my /etc/hosts: localhost slackserver

everytime i boot, i keeps changing to other name than that.

You need to edit /etc/HOSTNAME.

hostname <newhostname>

And you should really think about upgrading your Slackware, unless you've been maintaining it with -current as it's about 5 years outdated now.

Thanks all it works,
I'll update it soon, but you know what they say, as long as the system works just fine, why change? ;)
