Ooops! Sorry basher. /etc/hostname is a Debian specific file. Wrong forum :D You need to edit /etc/hosts and /etc/sysconfig/network, and then restart network services. Alternatively, you can do this (as root), and not bother restarting: $ echo "localhost" > /proc/system/kernel/hostname You can then ...

How ridiculous! Good for you for writing void, but I am sure that your e-mail is going right into their junk-bin.

Tux is right. You can catch the feeds off of BBC and CBC (Canada) if you'd like.

PS) Team USA Basketball is rolling everyone! Back to the good old days!

I haven't been able to get OpenWrt to work on my version 6 router. I believe it is like you said -- You probably have to use a different set of pins. Plus, the board looks nothing like the board in your picture, so I didn't want to fry the thing. DD Wrt is working great, though. I was able to get ip...

Just edit /etc/hostname to change your hostname to whatever you want.

I believe you cane so it as root from the command line as well

$ hostname <new-hostname>

Void's "Bricked" Linksys WRT54 Router Guide

I thought that I'd share this with you guys, since if any of you are like me, and you are running a Version 6 or greater. This site has a nice easy way upgrade your router's firmware from that crap Linksys was using to dd-wrt, a Linux firmware. http://www.wrtrouters.com/guides/upgradetolinux/ I am s...

A forum for books?

Since this is a relatively small community here, I was wondering if Void would be interested in starting a new forum strictly for Linux related books. I am sure that we all have our own shelves just full of gems, but I think it would be pretty cool if we could all pool our resources, and provide eac...

Debian Firewall HOW TO

This is an excellent read for anyone out there that wants to run a Debian based firewall. Perfect for "fun time" if you have an old PC laying around, and want to give building a firewall a shot. Provides a nice opportunity to get your feet wet with Shorewall, especially for those of you out there wh...

If you could, please post the output of:

Code: Select all

apt-cache policy package_that_is_giving_you_problems.rpm
That is always a good step to start with dissecting issues with apt.

Scratch that!!! I forgot to encapsulate one line in the postfixadmin config.inc.php file. Two hours for one character. I love it! :D

I was reading the wrong log file. Thanks anyways.

postfixadmin won't display ../admin/list-admin.php

For reasons unknown to me, I am getting a blank page when I try to administrate postfixadmin. I believe that I have set up everything properly, at least according to the setup.php page, but after I enter my .htaccess username and password, I get a nice, white screen staring back at me. Permission ar...

I completely forgot about this one.

If you ever resuscitate your Mac OS X box, then you can use SSHFS for OS X:

I was using it to transfer files between my Mac and my FreeBSD box some time ago when I was creating my web site.

To edit /etc/hosts on OS X you simply use sudo, just like you would in Linux/BSD:

Open a terminal:

sudo vi /etc/hosts

Enter in the admin's password.

Bandwidth Regulation Might Soon Hit Major US ISPs.

I guess that these corporate cronies found some religion and care about fairness. I am sure it has nothing to do with the opportunity to make a few extra bucks on their already over-priced plans.
