This would make sense if I was part of a network...but what do I put
for my domain? I'm running a standalone system...no SLIP/PPP, no
ethernet. I just want the loopback device configured.
Come to think of it, lpd and httpd are complaining about this too. I
read through the NET-HOWTO docs, and I seem to have everything set up
correctly, but I'm still having problems with daemons trying to figure
out my hostname. I tried putting in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file with
no references to nameservers, but that didn't help at all.
I'm not experienced with setting up a network, so if anyone has a UDB
standalone, and are NOT experiencing these problems, could you send me
a note on how you configured your network in RH 3.0.3? Thanks. There
are a handful of files that need to be set up correctly and I must be
missing something somewhere.
