Re: Preserving Hostname/DNS Name


Thanks for the reply. I will investigate why Gnome-keyring-manager is
not working =(.


 Thanks for the suggestion, I will try that as an alternative.  It
would be really nice if NetworkManager optionally would at least
inform the dhcp server of the local hostname, if not the extension

This was really annoying me too.

I wrote a small script set my hostname back again and put it
in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d. Now when NM connects, it resets my
hostname back to what it was before. Messy, but it works ;)
