    13.04 dmesg: Warning: nss-myhostname is not installed

    Why am I getting this line in my dmesg file: [12531.694935] systemd-hostnamed[4495]: Warning: nss-myhostname is not installed. Changing the local hostname might make it unresolveable. Please install nss-myhostname!

    I am not experiencing any problems, but don't like seeing this type of message in my boot logs.

    Any ideas on why or work arounds??

    This is probably a result of the incorporation of some of systemd into Upstart routines. See here.

    A Google search reveals these items.

    My guess is that the /etc/hostname isn't quite correct. On the other hand the error message is quite specific -- Warning: nss-myhostname is not installed. Changing the local hostname might make it unresolveable. Please install nss-myhostname!.

    This is all very bleeding edge so who knows what the ramifications are. I believe if you configure your networking manually via the standard files (/etc/hosts and /etc/network/interfaces) the above error message will disappear.

    Edit: Here is the developers information on nss-myhostname.

    Does
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libnss-myhostname
    help?
