Description Igor Rafienko 2005-01-30 17:39:04 UTC
The gentoo handbook for amd64 says that one should scribble something sensible in  /etc/hostname and /etc/dnsdomainname. However, if one does that, the next time the system boots up, one can see a message telling that /etc/conf.d/hostname and /etc/conf.d/domainname are the places where such information should be placed.

The relevant handbook url is <URL:>
