Setting System Name?

Setting System Name?

Post by *n o - s p a m *cosm » Thu, 27 Aug 1998 04:00:00



I just loaded Red Hat 5.1  Upon booting it prints the error:

Starting SMB Services: SMBD httpd: cannot determine local hostname
Use ServerName to set it manually

I can find a command `ServerName`.  I tried running `linuxconf` as well,
but can't find anything to set the node name.

The system is somehow coming up with _no system name_ at all.  How do I
set this??

TIA.

1. lpsystem -t bsd system-name [remote-printer-name???]

I am running Solaris 2.5 and from the FAQ was able to get printing to an
HP JetDirect card pretty easily.  I just did a:

lpsystem -t bsd hp4
[and so on from the FAQ]

Works just fine, I can print.  But I've got that annoying issue of
line feeds not getting acknowledged by the printer.  I know in
an lpr system, if I set the remote printer (rp=text), that solves
the problem.

Is there any way with lpsystem to specify the remote printer name?

I tried:
#lpsystem -t bsd hp4
"hp4" has been modified.
#lpadmin -p text -s hp4.corp.dti.net
#accept text
destination "text" now accepting requests
#enable text
printer "text" now enabled

This didn't make any difference.  I tried playing around with the
configuration file in /etc/lp/printers too, no dice.

Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated!
