This is part of a series of posts where I put down what I did while playing around with SteamOS.
I wanted to change the hostname of the system, because my router resolves the hostnames quite nicely. This machine was supposed to be called „art„. That is quite simple to achieve by editing to files:
Change to a local terminal via Ctrl+Alt+F1 (get back to the UI via Ctrl+Alt+F7.) SSH isn’t that useful because we will be restarting the network at the end, disconnecting the SSH session.
