Re: WORKAROUND Re: Cannot change hostname permanently

It also says that the hostname is set at boot using the file /etc/hostname:

The name of the computer ("host") is set by the "hostname" command. The "hostname" command does not modify the "/etc/hostname" file. The boot-up scripts call the "hostname" command, reading the "/etc/hostname" file, to set the name of the host.

I cannot find anything which says that the hostname command itself modifies /etc/hostname.

That's because the hostname command does not modify /etc/hostname.
