[Date Prev][Date Next] [Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index] in /etc/hosts

Is there any particular reason why netcfg maps to the
hostname in /etc/hosts? I.e.:	myhost	localhost

This makes reverse lookups quite confusing, as you expect to
be mapped to localhost, not to the hostname. I know that GNOME and
possibly other programs need to be able to resolve the hostname, but
isn't it better to define it as an alias in that case:	localhost	myhost
