Can be edited with gedit for instance, not sure if you need root permissions.
If you’re only interested in changing the hostname that is sent, or rahter seen by, the network, you can change the dhcp settings.
In /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf you can see right after the initial comments this:
send host-name "<hostname>";
You edit it to something like
#send host-name "<hostname>";
send host-name "m4m";
You’re good to go.
Chromium is getting ported to linux, so why not give it a spin?
The project in hosted on launchpad, and normaly no one would need instructions to add a repository or PPAs or whatever but since they started using PGP keys, it’s not as straightforward. You can see instructions on the Launchpad Blog but I’m putting them here for future reference.
The PPAs (for ubuntu 9.04, check the launchpad page for other versions) are:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
And the key file is this, but save yourselve the trouble and download it already on a file from my mirror
Now go to System->Admnistration->Software Sources and under Third Party Software add the PPAs. Don’t update just yet because you’ll need the key. Under Authentication hit Import Key File and choose the file you downloaded. Now you’re good to go, update away.
The package is chromium-browser . It already has tabs but will crash on you without hesitation.
It’s in pre-alpha stage, read the warning, so don’t bitch about it.
