Hi all. gentoo newbie, here so probably did something dumb. Installed liveCD 2005.1, most stuff went ok, but when I boot the resulting system, it doesn't seem to know what domain it's in.

I editted /etc/conf.d/domainname and set DNSDOMAIN to a plausible value.
I did rc-update domainname default
When it boots, it says its name is <hostname>.(none)

Hints? TIA...

Yup, you're right, that does it. Many thanks.

It's awfully obscure, though (ordering of translations in /etc/hosts). Is this on somebody's list of bugs to fix, I hope?
