After installing XFCE, and started it a message tells
"It can't find IP for BAUHAUS (the localhost). Look for your DNS configuration or put BAUHAUS in the /etc/hosts. Continue? Try Again?"
Why XFCE looks for the IP? My computer is disconnected almost all the day; and I only connect it to surf, or pacman. And the message appears inmedatly after put "startxfce4", in the x-window, before the task-bar, xfdestop,...are loaded.
This hasn't happened before. What I can do? Thanks
Add the following to /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 bauhaus bauhaus
You might also want to keep the <code>localhost</code> alias in your hosts file as well, since some programs depend on it being there for the loopback interface (I know that NTP does), and others look for your actual hostname (like Xfce, as you've noticed). You can have both without any problems:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost bauhaus
