Hostname persistant (Samba issue)
How do I make the hostname stick?
Running Mandriva 2008.1 + Samba (user level shares)
Sharing a few folders, but when the hostname is localhost, the Windows machines complain about duplicate name when they login to the share, and hence wont work.
If I run the command line
then restart the smb service, then all OK (shares work great) until the next reboot.
a reboot resets the hostname to localhost and the windows machines complain again.
Adding the machines ip and name to /etc/hosts dont work.
what have I got to change to make the hostname stick after a reboot?
