    Post machine name

    Little issue this time:

    By default, when I install my system the installation names my machine: linux-sll1

    How can I change that name ?

    YaST > Network Services > DNS and Hostname
    where you should see linux-sll1 in a block named "Hostname" where you
    can change it and then click "Finish"

    unless you are Norwegian:-)

    IMHO using YaST is better, because there are more places where this goes like /etc/hosts.
