Try typing hostname from the command line. Then make sure that the
returned name has an ip address associated with it in /etc/hosts

I can't believe how dumb I am.  I mergemastered and overwrote my /etc/hosts
file.  It was a while ago and I forgot.

Thanks for the help.

Actually, I'm only half a fool.  I started to fix hosts, and found a swap
file.  Apparently, I had started to fix the file, but forgot about it.
Thanks again.

 I have not changed my hostname.  I have a new firewall at home, but I
 get the same message at work as well.  I upgrading something the
 other day that updated cvsup, and I had to fix the example supfile,
 the one I was using. Other than that, I don't get it.



You system doesn't know who it is. Check hosts and rc.conf.
