Serviceberry. I have a long tradition of calling machines after fruits of the dicotyledonous plants. I'm running out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dicotyledon says "There are around 199,350 species within this group" - just *how* big a RaspberryPiBramble are you planning to build Liz?! :shock: ;)

Ahem - isn't this really what your SD hostname is called?

With multiple RPi and cards - the hardware identity is not fixed. I have also noticed that not all RPIs are equal. One of my three exhibits the sticky keyboard feature. So it isn't software or peripherals/psu in this case. Its the tolerences of the board components.

Hence that board is more suitable for headless operation. So I need to identify the board as much as the card/hostname. It would be nice if someone could write a small script that would do a 'grep Serial /proc/cpuinfo', run it against a table of user friendly names "Sticky Fingers", "Between the Buttons" & "Let it Bleed" and show it in the welcome (MOTD?) to complement the SD generated hostname.

Anyone want to get a little famous?

...unless you configured your Pis to get their hostname from DHCP, and configured your DHCP server to give out a fixed hostname and static IP to each hardcoded MAC address :)

Dunno about famous, but give this a go

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
PIFILE=$HOME/mypis.txt
THISPI=$(grep ^Serial /proc/cpuinfo)
grep ${THISPI:18}: $PIFILE | cut -d: -f2
which expects a mypis.txt file looking like

Code: Select all

167fa72c:My Pi 1
00000000365fa718:Sticky Fingers
12ab4587:SuperPi
(the first 8 digits of the serial number are always zero, so you can optionally leave them out)

As my Pi is currently hosting a Synchronet BBS I've christened it (and the BBS) RaspiBBS - pop on and have a look - telnet://raspibbs.synchro.net:2300

Hallongrotta (n)

It's Swedish for a common homemade cookie, translated "Raspberry Cave".

It can also be applied to "cave in to something", it's a saying (maybe only over here..) when it's time to dig deep with a (nerd) project (100% focus about anything). And in this case, with the Raspi! :)

(Let's keep quiet about the dirty association...)

Enough with the word play.

I haven't settled on a name yet as i've only just got it/him/her :P but seen as how it's in a crust case i'm tempted to call it "crusty" but that sounds a bit nasty to me, but it'll do until i can think of something a bit better.
And i'm sure i'll post that name too :P but liking some of the names so far :)

My sons started naming their hosts by color.
I chose my Hosts names to fit the cases.
Now that my sons have moved out I rule the LAN. :twisted:

All of the Development Hosts are Linuxlab(x)
The Sheevaplug is Linuxlab3 and RPi is Linuxlab4.

I think I'll call mine (when I receive it) Málnalekvár which is raspberry jam translated into Hungarian.
