I'm a Linux newbie.
I have just installed Redhat Linux 8.0. I'm using DHCP to get a IP
address, DNS servers, etc. That's all working fine. The problem is,
the hostname of my linux box isn't being registered with DNS by DHCP.
The hostname of my Linux box is "seratonin", and I can't ping it from
other machines on my network (either by "seratonin" or
Below are all the setup files that might be relevant
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost seratonin
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
Note that for DHCP_HOSTNAME above I've tried "seratonin",
"seratonin.mycompany.com", 3D"seratonin", and leaving it out. I don't
know what the deal with the '3D' is, I saw it suggested somewhere.
Can anyone help me? It seems like it should be a pretty common
