    Default DHCP announce hostname

    I got a little problem with my NetworkManager. You see, in our network we rely on DHCP requests announcing their hostnames so we can later contact them using a FQDN. Only problem is that when I connect to the network using NetworkManager the hostname isn't announced properly, thus the DHCP/DNS server doesn't get to know it, and the other hosts are unable to find it.
    Using dhcpcd from the shell it works like a charm. Is there a simple solution for this?

    for me the fix is to edit /etc/dhclient.conf as root and put in

    send host-name "embla(or whatever you want)";
