7.6. Setting Hostname

Part of the job of the bootscripts is setting the system's hostname. This needs to be configured in the /etc/HOSTNAME file.

Create the HOSTNAME file and enter a hostname by running:

echo "[clfs]" > ${CLFS}/targetfs/etc/HOSTNAME

[clfs] needs to be replaced with the name given to the computer. Do not enter the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) here. That information will be put in the /etc/hosts file in the next section.
