Description giuliano 1999-08-19 00:26:13 UTC
I only have one ppp with IP dynamic connection to the internet, at home. When I upgraded from 5.2 to 6.0 there weren't any problems. Now I have installed 6.0 from the beginning, due to a new partitioning of the hd and the name in /etc/HOSTNAME is changed everytime I connect to the internet to something like "sdts1-09" (the name of the asyncronous port of my ISP's PC). What can I do to avoid this?  Thanks  Giuliano Grandin
