How We're Keeping You At the Center of the Funtoo UniverseRead about recent developments that keep you, our users, at the forefront of our focus as Funtoo moves forward.
net-tools is the old networking tools package that is in the process of being deprecated by Iproute2. We still need, and require these tools to set hostname. see the iproute2 page for a list of commands, and their replacements.
hostname- show or set the system's host name
dnsdomainname- show the system's DNS domain name
domainname- show or set the system's NIS/YP domain name
nisdomainname- show or set system's NIS/YP domain name
ypdomainname- show or set the system's NIS/YP domain name
/etc/conf.d/hostname controls the system hostname.
/etc/conf.d/net is where your domain name is defined.
/etc/hosts is where static routes and loopbacks are defined.
