    sudo: unable to resolve host

    hi, every time i try to use sudo it comes up like this:
    sudo: unable to resolve host businessgaming (businessgamming is the name of my system)
    i recently tried to change the name because during the installation, i spelled business wrong (like this "bussinessgaming")

    anyone know how i can fix this, my hosts file looks like this: businnessgaming # Added by NetworkManager localhost.localdomain localhost
    ::1 businnessgaming localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 businnessgaming

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts


    when ever i click on any app on the title it says "appname (on bussinessgaming)" for example right now it says "Opera (on bussinessgaming)" which means i have another problem.
