Gnome keyring questions

Posted 03-19-2021 at 08:47 AM by Ninguém (Anybody's business)

First question to Debian social group

Posted 03-02-2021 at 03:26 AM by Ninguém (Anybody's business)
Updated 03-03-2021 at 04:12 AM by Ninguém

I decided to pursue the subject brought up by zrong in keep /etc/hosts up to date (dhcp) regarding 127.0.1.1 being Debian specific to the Debian social group.
Lets see if it sparks any interaction...
Here is the thread. I don't think this kind of thread can be referenced with bbcode using [thread].
...
Well, it didn't.
I ended up (sort of) answering my own question, maybe a little too soon, and certainly too loosely and imprecise as well.

Subscribed myself to Debian social group today.
Lets see what that brings...

I tried to search for other groups that could be more meaningful to me, but found none.

When you get your IP address using DHCP in a domain your /etc/hosts file, as well as /etc/networks might get out of sync with reality.
