I'm on a Kubuntu 11.10 and I'm having trouble setting a hostname on the network.
I already tried changing
send host-name "myhostname" in
/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf with a networking restart after that (even a reboot).
My hostname is still new-host-4 or new-host-5. I assume it's the DHCP server who gave me these names.
I also know that the servers allows these request since iPhones, Macs can set their hostnames and the hostname I ask is not in use.
Any idea what to do ?
