Is there an easy way of auto generating a hostname at boot time?
I've got a system that I'm building that runs on a minimal setup from a
ramdisk and stores very little state information.
I'd like to be able to build multiple of these units on my network.
Is there a way of having a hostname auto generted at boot time, possibly
based on an available network address.
hostname not on the network: beagleboard
hostname on the network: beagleboard-00259C642A2C
Getting the hostname suffix from the ethernet0 HWaddr.
I'm sure that this is a standard sort of solution, I just don't know the
right keyword combination to find it.
