I have squid installed on RH9 , I have configured the squid.conf file to contain an entry
visible_hostname 'dumbterminal'

but when I try to start squid I get the error!!!

----------------
#squid -z
FATAL: Could not determine fully qualified hostname. Please set 'visible_hostname'

There's no need for it to be in your hosts file.

Can you post your whole squid.conf so we can have a look?
Code:
cat /etc/squid.conf | grep -v ^# | grep -v ^$
Also, you might wanna consider upgrading to a non-ancient version of Squid, in case this is a bug.
