Changing the hostname in Frugalware

This is just a quick note so that I know where to look next time break things badly enough to need to reinstall. The default hostname used by Frugalware is not the hostname I want to use and after a bit of poking around, I have found that there are two files that need to be amended in order to change this.

The files are:

  • /etc/hostname
  • /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf

The actual change you need to make will be obvious as soon as you open the file.
