Hosts file has changed on installation.

I installed the KDEbase packages and some other stuff using Yum extender. Before my hosts file was "c~" and for some reason something changed it to "kyle-0xo59vi1vf" I dont know what I installed to make it change my host file like that but now Im getting these weird errors on startup that say I should add "kyle-0xo59vi1vf" to my "ect/hosts/" file. Has anyone else experienced t his?

Weird. Nothing I know of should change your hostname once you've set it during installation, except if you execute as root "hostname <new_hostname>". What happens when you execute the command "hostname" with no arguments?
