[ANN] hostname_manager


I have written a script to manage the hostname on a Slackware installation. It may be downloaded from here: https://gitlab.com/chrisabela/hostname_manager.git

A demonstration may be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozDBwsgRXMs

In addition, a script to change the MAC address of interfaces can be downloaded from here: https://github.com/ChrisAbela/random-mac-generator.git

I had written these scripts due to privacy concerns, as I suspect that I can be traced by means of MAC address or hostname. I hope that someone finds them useful.

This script is cool and I like that fact that you did your video outside. That could be any tree anywhere. Keeping any real personal information about you other then what you look like private as well.

oh my. Just went to get it, and...

Please contact your GitLab administrator if you think this is a mistake.

I used a gmail to sign in, if that might have anything to do with that 404 error.

Inadvertently, I had uploaded the script as private. Now it should be accessible.
