Commit Message

Vincent Prince May 29, 2018, 8 a.m.
nss-myhostname is helpful to resolve local hostname without domain.
For instance, if we set hostname to myboard and ping myboard
without .local suffix, it fails if /etc/hosts stays unchanged.

nss-myhostname modifies /etc/nsswitch.conf file.
It set myhostname resolution just after files in hosts line,
for example:
    hosts: files myhostname mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns

This choice comes from Debian commit [1] and Yocto recipe [2].
Also, nss-myhostname author suggests myhostname should be used as
a backup and appended at the end of hosts line. Both choices are valid.

Discussion on Debian bug tracker [3] gives some details on issue
that may occurs using nss-myhostname (see fqdn).

Note nss-myhostname is already included in systemd is it conflicts with it
