I'm having host problems (null)~# and SLIP problems

Post by sn.. » Sun, 25 Dec 1994 20:37:01

Hello, i just installed a newer version of Linux, and am having
problems with hostname.  the first thing i noticed after i installed
linux and logged in for the first time, my prompt was:


even though i ran netconfg, etc...
also, when i try dip -t it gives me host lookup failure or something.
i checked my /etc/hosts file and my host is in that file properly,
has anyone had problems like this?  I didnt have these problems in
the previous version of linux i was running.

thanks a bunch!

1. rsh machine -n 'command >&/dev/null </dev/null &'

My copy of the Unix FAQ suggests syntax like this

            rsh machine -n 'command >&/dev/null </dev/null &'

for running rsh (assuming I use csh on the remote machine, and
something similar if I use sh remotely).  This has always worked
fine for me under SunOS 4.1.2.

My question is: Will this magic necessary under Solaris 2.X?

Many thanks!
