I am running Slackware 14.1 kernel 3.14.24-smp. This host get's it IP via DHCP. My problem is that when booting, during initial DHCP/IP negotiation, I see a message to the effect: "unable to determine fully qualified domain name". Running `hostname` gives:
$ hostname -f
# (a few second delay ...)
Why does my DHCP server (also Linux) not "set" the domain name? My /etc/HOSTNAME file is:
and /etc/hosts is:
I was running Ubuntu on this same machine and the domain name seemed to get set OK. It has a /etc/hostname file, not /etc/HOSTNAME, but it, /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf contained the same thing (with the exception of the 192.168.1.1 nameserver which is likely from the wlan0's different DHCP server).
What's up? Do I need some additional DHCP client parameters?
