I recently made a CentOS install on a machine with an unsupported
network card. I had to add the driver for it later, once I finished the
install. For now I have this:
[kikinovak at localhost ~]$ hostname --fqdn
Q: how would I change this to something like calimero.local?
Here's what I *would* do, but I prefer to ask before.
1) edit /etc/sysconfig/network and edit this line:
2) add a line to /etc/hosts like this:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
127.0.0.1 calimero.local calimero
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
