==Set host name/IP==
Shouldn't the hosts file include the local static IP address and computer name along with the loopback version?

==Troubleshooting Ping==
The section entitled Troubleshooting should probably include a section to address the problem of ping not working correctly.

== Needs cleanup ==
The hostname portion fails to explain whether or not the quotation marks around the name is required.  The next example does not have them.  Either way, it must be explained.
We are left with another question; is it listed in hosts under the loopback address only, or also included in the standard IP address?
Under IP Aliasing we are missing the explanation of what it is and why one would use it.
Regarding the TCP window scaling, what does the following phrase mean:
"Or you can try to remove one of your RAM sticks (yes, sir)."
Let's clean this up, everyone.

== <s> Udev rule for static interface naming </s>==
Save of reverted dispute:
{{Accuracy|From [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames upstream document]:''The biggest of all however is that the userspace components trying to assign the interface name raced against the kernel assigning new names from the same "ethX" namespace, a race condition with all kinds of weird effects, among them that assignment of names sometimes failed. As a result support for this has been removed from systemd/udev a while back''. Someone should check this method work or not. Even if it does work, this method is highly '''not recommended'''.}}
:Hi, thanks for reviewing the addition. I revert the dispute though for the following reason: If you follow the upstream link you provide, you will see the udev rule set out as option 2 at the bottom when the systemd wiki explains about how to opt-out from the new naming scheme. Hence, it _is_ supported as long as arbitrary names (eth,wlan) are not used. The note in the section warns about arbitrary names already. I actually added the note about race conditions after either Dave or Thomas pointed it out on the bbs about a year ago. Feel free to dispute again, but I don't have information this does not work as of today (do you? maybe, systemd is updating quick). If you are ok with it, feel free to clean talk right away.

:: Fine then. Personally I think all custemize udev rules are evil :) Let the user choose. -- 05:41, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
