Description of problem:
I use a Router with DHCP. My computers (both fc5 and fc6) always identify as noname to the router although the names of the mashines are others.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. There is nothing to do exept to start the computer
the computer identifies as noname to the network
the computer should identify as f. e. tkdesktop.koenning (the given name of the computer)
Need more information for this bug report. What is your hostname set to?
I'm afraid I still don't have enough information to go with. Is there a set of
steps to recreate the problem you are having? And by that, I mean all the way
from installation to problem.
Ok. as i remeber, i installed FC6 and after the installation the computer was
named noname. Then i started the graphical network-administration-tool and
changed the name to tkdesktop. On the prompt, i can see that the changes took
place, but in the router i still get the Computer shown as noname.
(The router is an AVM Fritz!Box 2070)
Can you run the following command to scan your /etc tree for noname:
find /etc -type f | xargs grep noname
This command gives no results!
OK, if 'noname' is not in _any_ file in /etc, then it's coming from somewhere
else and it's not related to Fedora. Perhaps your AVM Fritz!Box 2070 is
defaulting to noname for some reason.
Closing this as NOTABUG.
