Wonder how do I request username from dhcp on Ubuntu 8.10.
Here is what I have so far:
Packages dhcp3-client and dhcp3-common are installed.
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
domain-name, domain-name-servers, domain-search, host-name,
netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope, interface-mtu;
I tried removing /etc/hostname and when system boots I get "(none)" as hostname.
All DHCP server configuration is fine and system is resolved from outside world but hostname on the machine can't be setup unless I use /etc/hostname and write the hostname in there.
I'm using NetworkManager with wired network.
