::<pre>i like the look except for the links not being blue, however it should be an easier template...  like {{talk|content yarg three sixes yacks on ye page}} (or discussion if i spelled that big fucker right)  something that handles the : & ~~~~ automatically.... something so i can quick, and dirty drop comments, and think about exactly NOTHING....  probably wrapped in pre tagz so i can drop my fugly wiki syntax if im bitching about content updates. idk how id handle pre codes within the pre since it wants to stop the original pre, probably something stupid like not wrapping with carrots..... pre carrot me when inserting in a real page /pre </pre[[User:Threesixes|Threesixes]] ([[User talk:Threesixes|talk]]) 12:40, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

A hostname is a unique name created to identify a machine on a network. In computer networking, a hostname is a label that is assigned to a device connected to a computer network and that is used to identify the device in various forms of electronic communication such as the World Wide Web, e-mail or Usenet. Hostnames may be simple names consisting of a single word or phrase, or they may be structured.
I wish I could. But I don't know if it's possible to automatically insert Author and Date. I should probably take a look on that.

In Funtoo Linux <code>/etc/conf.d/hostname</code> is the master configuration file for setting a hostname. In OpenRC framework <code>/etc/conf.d/foo</code> is the configuration file for a corresponding Init script <code>/etc/init.d/foo</code>With the case of hostname, default value in <code>/etc/conf.d/hostname</code> is set to ''localhost'', means when system boots and OpenRC's <code>/etc/init.d/hostname</code> script started a hostname getting only ''localhost'' name.

Let's play a bit with a configuration. Open <code>/etc/conf.d/hostname</code> with your favorite editor and set a hostname of your choice. Below, I will use a real examples of my working test box.

Introduction

A hostname is a unique name created to identify a machine on a network. In computer networking, a hostname is a label that is assigned to a device connected to a computer network and that is used to identify the device in various forms of electronic communication such as the World Wide Web, e-mail or Usenet. Hostnames may be simple names consisting of a single word or phrase, or they may be structured.

Configuration

In Funtoo Linux /etc/conf.d/hostname is the master configuration file for setting a hostname. In OpenRC framework /etc/conf.d/foo is the configuration file for a corresponding Init script /etc/init.d/foo. With the case of hostname, default value in /etc/conf.d/hostname is set to localhost, means when system boots and OpenRC's /etc/init.d/hostname script started a hostname getting only localhost name. How it looks? In your shell promt this will look in following way, an example for root:

localhost ~ #  Hello :)

Let's play a bit with a configuration. Open /etc/conf.d/hostname with your favorite editor and set a hostname of your choice. Below, I will use a real examples of my working test box.

localhost ~ #  nano /etc/conf.d/hostname

Let's set it to hostname="oleg-stable.host.funtoo.org". Save the file and restart a hostname service:

localhost ~ #  service hostname restart

Now, let's examine our changes, after a restarting a hostname

oleg-stable ~ #  Hello :)

Notice, that we seeing a shortened hostname here, and not a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). Don't be frustrated , this is how default bash promt PS1 set. To get nice promts, please, consult http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/l-tip-prompt/ <-- this one should be on Funtoo wiki :)
