Fedora 2 and /etc/hosts...
FC2 doesn't seem to have set itself up correctly upon wants me to add the physical address of my etherlink card to /etc/hosts...? (Here I am frustrated and using WinSucks, again...)

RH9 demanded the same, ages ago, and I did it and everything worked fine ( but I forget the exact edit of /etc/hosts that achieved it...).

At present my /etc/hosts contains only;


#(you know)
#(etc) localhost.localdomain hostname localhost

Where do I insert the x1-6-00-etc...?

Thanks, folks...-Allen (newbie all over again)

Are you sure it's in the /etc/hosts ?

If you refer to the MAC address as physical adress then it's entered in

so in the case we are talking about eth0
it's in

In this file you shall enter

where XX:YY:ZZ...... ist your MAC address
