This question already has an answer here:
Getting 'unable to resolve host' error and need to change name. How do I do this?
$ cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 linux # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
Think my hostname is way to difficult to remember :-)
No need for security on this machine.
Beginner in Linux so explicit help would be appreciated.
