Hi when i open my terminal it says my host name is my mac address, the prompt looks like this:

User@DEVICE_MAC\0000\00000\00000\00000\00000\00000\000 ~ $

I have replaced my real user name and mac address for security.
My host name also shows up like this at the top of firefox and other Xorg based web applications that show the host name at the top of the window.
Btw I'm using networkmanager nm applet in xfce.

Thanks for the help :lol: .

Code:
ASUS-G75VW roman # grep G75V /usr/src/linux/.config
CONFIG_DEFAULT_HOSTNAME="ASUS_G75VW"


Are you asking for that?
