 +====== Change Hostname in Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) ======
  
 +In order to change your host name you need to edit two files and then reboot the system.
 +
 +In my examples below I use //vi// as the editor. ​ If you are not familiar with //vi// you can replace it with something like //gedit// (for a GUI editor) or //pico// (for an easy to use command line editor).
 +
 +1. Edit the hostname file.
 +
 +This file contains a single line that includes only the hostname itself and nothing else.  Replace the current hostname with the one you'd like.
 +
 +  sudo vi /​etc/​hostname
 +
 +2. Now, we need edit the hosts file so that the system can find your new host name.  To do that, run the following command.
 +
 +  sudo vi /etc/hosts
 +
 +Change the hostname on the second line.  See the example below.
 +
 +  127.0.0.1 ​      ​localhost
 +  127.0.1.1 ​      <​hostname>​
 +
 +3. Finally, reboot the system with the following command.
 +
 +  sudo shudown -r now
