Re: Preserving Hostname/DNS Name

I have network manager setup under Gentoo - it was pretty easy.

then cleaned up the scripts themself (rm /etc/init.d/net.eth*)

After that all is well, except two things.

a. I use Gnome.  After connecting to a wireless network, my machine
takes whatever hostname is given, thus borking my gnome session.  I
have to logout then in, and everything works.

steev sigma ~ % cat /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
send host-name "sigma";
supersede host-name "sigma";

b. It doesn't (seem to) provide a faculty for retaining WEP keys.

Retaining keys does require gnome-keyring, it is a dep that should be added for the functionality. I will get to it as soon as possible. Also, you can check the list archives, a few weeks ago someone asked about it starting instead of net.{w*,e*,a*} - there is a setting in the /etc/conf.d/rc file that you can set to have it ignore (good for those baselayout updates since INSTALL_MASK doesn't stop symlinks from being created.)
