Yes, but only if there is nothing in there yet. I am not against setting
this registry value and I see why it's set. I was just saying that this
init stuff makes me nervous when thinking about improving the function -
obviously the "normal" registry functions aren't yet available. What I'd
propose for init time is
- check the availability of the ComputerName entry in the registry,
- if not there, set it directly from gethostname()
Then I'd implement proper ComputerNameEx(), ComputerName() in Kernel32
with all options, and remove it from the init code.
> Do you really need a NetBIOS name different from the hostname?
I do not strictly need it. But without doubt the two name concepts are
different. Users/administrators may need it. I like the idea that
administrators can have consistent settings between Samba and Wine (btw
I thought about parsing smb.conf for these entries to make additional
registry editing superfluous, but this is a future issue).
