You need to edit the /etc/hosts file to set the name and domain
for You can not get these from a DNS server and this
is the information returned by "hostname -f"

In the /etc/hosts file you need to have something like this at
the top of the file:

---	name.domain	name	localhost.localdomain	localhost

Hope this helps,
