I have changed the hostname of my computer from dar to hus by editing the /etc/hosts file and /etc/hostname file.

Now the problem is that some software which were installed under 'dar' are not working properly. Like Eclipse is not updating and it is looking for its repository in a path which consists dar as home and now does not exist. What to do now?
