My hostname got out of sync with what it is set to in System Preferences - Sharing. From what I've read this is most likely related to a router having the ability to update my hostname.
Anyhow, I've read about and tried two different things:
- editing /etc/hostconfig
- using the scutil cmd
Both methods appear to solve my original problem, having my terminal properly display my hostname, but now I'm concerned about the side effects of having set my hostname in 3 ways and them not being in sync.
Am I fine? Should I just make Sys Prefs match what I've done with /etc/hostconfig and scutil?
