Well, Im on FreeBSD 4.8-R Fresh installation, and i have a simple
Lets say I named my box Xname so in rc.conf the hostname ="xname"
When the machine start, the logs will start to complain /var/log/messages
xname sm-mta: unable to qualify my own domain name (xname) -- using
xname sm-msp-queue: My unqualified host name (xname) unknown;
sleeping for retry
xname sm-msp-queue: unable to qualify my own domain name (xname) --
using short name
Yes I do have a domain name lets say its Xwhatever.com
and Yes if i will change the hostname -s to Xwhatever.com it will work
but its not a logic to keep the command line standby as a domain name,
so where do i tell my box that Xname = Xwhatever.com ?
I tried to add to /etc/hosts this line
Xname <Space> Xwhatever.com
localhost <space> Xname
but its still the same,
Any help would be appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.
