In Porteus 3.2.2 64 XFCE, when I use this script https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=6015 or manually edit the /etc/HOSTNAME file, and reboot, I receive a long list of "No protocol specified" messages at boot time, and it won't boot Xorg for a long while then. It eventually starts the GUI but at the next reboot the same 10 minutes delay of printing "No protocol specified" on console. I suspect I need to also delete some cashed old value or tmp file or something?
The reason I'd like to change the hostname from "porteus" is that I don't want this name to be present on the network. Or I shouldn't bother? Does this name identify this machine in the network at all?
