How to permanently change hostname? and are there repercussions to applications?
When I first installed RHEL6 as the OS for my machine I built, I entered the hostname as 'B.A.M.'
I did not realize it at the time, but the periods cause my command terimnal line to just appear as 'Kato@B:'
I would like it to appear as 'Kato@BAM:'
I have tried to change it and thought that I did so, but every time I reboot, my command terminal line reverts back to the old 'Kato@B:'
Q. How do I permanently change my host name to 'BAM'? AND are there possible repercussions to retrieving files or using applications that I am not aware of once I do change the hostname to 'BAM'?
