 I assume you want to change the hostname. The proper way to do that in Archlinux is:

hostnamectl set-hostname myhostname

Replace myhostname with the name you want it to be.

Subject: [App_rpt-users] shortcut to change hostname

I had made a typo when initializing a RPI2 and used nano 
to edit /etc/hostname  and I fixed my typo .
it worked until I rebooted and my typo 
how do I make it perminate? /etc/hostname file still has 
the correct name in it.
