# vi /etc/rc.conf Add hostname="yourhostname" to the file Reboot will make the change permanent. For a temprary hostname : #hostname yourhostname To verify if the hostname was set : #hostname The hostname is not related to X nor xdm/gdm/kdm, but is a system parameter. Many applications will not function properly or at all without the machine knowing who it is. Xdm/kdm/gdm are amongst those appz that won't work without the hostname. Also, I always take the xinitrc template from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit, copy it to my home directory and modify at will. Good luck. -----Original Message----- From: Brett Wiggins [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Friday, June 18, 2004 6:21 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: more kdm questions hello again, > Did you set the hostname ? > > This is going to sound like a stupid question but how do I set the hostname?
