I am in the process of populating a base image aimed for cloning, a
"thin client". We use a recent Xorg (Ubuntu 8.04 updated,
1.4.1~git20080131-1ubuntu9.2) that contain features that we need
(xrandr, latest video driver, dual screen support). Everything works
Our problem : hostname. We like to keep thing very simple (we got
mixed architecture here. Making change to the fat server (host) is not
a very good idea. I like to set the thin client hostname to localhost.
Problem ? The fat server try to talk via hostname to the machine.
I like to know if, on the thin client, there would be a way to force
to server to use IP instead of hostname.
Thank you !
