To solve the problem, edit the file /etc/hosts

Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 <ADD_YOURS_HERE>
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 <ADD_YOURS_HERE>
Just add your hostname to the end of both the lines as shown above, that should solve the problem.
here's my /etc/hosts
Code:
127.0.0.1		localhost.localdomain localhost
::1		localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
do i need to put my username between the <>?

i wonder if i need to change my firstline as well to localhost 4? i'll try with adding my hostname only and see if it works

I think is better to leave all default names. I mean:
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 plain_host_name
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 plain_host_name
If your host has a fixed ip address like mine, than is better to leave 127.0.0.1 to localhost names and use a separate line for your local address. Mine is:
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
192.168.0.1 babylon5.my_own_domain babylon5

i'm on dynamic, but i will keep that in mind when i apply for a fixed ip in (hopefully) the near future

You need to put your hostname, not the username, at the end of the 2 lines. And it's not to be inserted in between <> - I used those angle brackets just as a placeholder.

Thanks this fixed it for me. And for those who don't remember what you set your hostname to it shows up when you open a terminal. Example mine says jonathan@jonserver so after the @ is your host name. Can someone verify that this will always be the case?

How do you figure out this ?
Most interesting than the fix itself is how you came to this...

Anyway, thank you !
i'm also insterested in how you figure this out as well...

I changed my hostname during the installation process, but do not appear to have any sudo delay.
