I changed my hostname under host names it still didn't chang

I changed my hostnam under network settings hostnames in yast. INSCSAMBA ALIAS INSCSAMBA

looks like it changed under /etc/hosts
rebooted server. name is still the same even though
/etc/host shows the change. What gives?:sarcastic:



this is the way:
kdesu kwrite /etc/HOSTNAME

or for gnome

gnomesu gedit /etc/HOSTNAME

YaST > Network Devices > Network Cards: Tab Hostname/DNS.

BTW I hope the above line is not exactly what you have in /etc/hosts. When yes, the name ALIAS is also an alias now (or did you mean that to be so). And INSCSAMBA is an alias of INSCSAMBA (rather superfluous). And the capitals are of no use here.
