Network Config


Ok i just reinstalled slack and i accidentaly chose the option to configure my network which i did not want to do because i have an acx100 card which i have to configure manually but now my prompt says bellsouth because thats what i put when i went through the configuration. it used to say darkstar. i went and deleted the line conaining all the bellsouth stuff in hosts but then it says gnome may not work properly. can anyone tell me how to get rid of everything the network configuration did when i installed slack?

hmmm, well if you don't want to run the netconfig again and you are satisfied with how your network is set up, just leave everything alone. or maybe you can describe exactly what you want to do. btw, does gnome work?

see if you have an /etc/HOSTNAME file. it might have written there. or else it will be in /etc/hosts. reboot and see if it "sticks."
