Default Problem with updating on Ubuntu (Linux)

Okay, after a bit of trouble I got Wyvern installed on my computer in the /wyvern/client/ directory. I couldn't figure out how to make a launcher, so I ignored that part, since it isn't required to play (right?).

I then tried running wyvernclient, and it seems to work, except it gets stuck on the JExpress Updater, telling me that it's "Getting list of updated files". The progress bar fills up, and then restarts, in a never ending loop. When I run it in the terminal (with sudo, since it doesn't give the proper permissions without it), I get this message, repeatedly and very very fast:

Exception: java.net.UnknownHostException: Ubuntu-laptop: Ubuntu-laptop
Exception: java.net.UnknownHostException: Ubuntu-laptop: Ubuntu-laptop
Exception: java.net.UnknownHostException: Ubuntu-laptop: Ubuntu-laptop
ect... after a while, it stops saying this and just says "java.lang.StackOverflowError" once.

Default Woot!

Woohoo, I got it! If anyone else has this problem, try this:

Go to the /etc/ directory, and edit the file /etc/hosts , using a text editor. Add the line "127.0.0.0" below the other hosts (could be different if the other hosts all say something else), and on the same line (in the style of the other hosts) type whatever the unknown host was. In my case, this was Ubuntu-laptop: Ubuntu-laptop. This made the line I added look like this:

127.0.0.0 Ubuntu-laptop: Ubuntu-laptop

Save the file. You might (I did) get an error message saying that you don't have permission to write this file. If you do (and here I'm assuming you are an administrator on your computer), save it to your desktop instead. After doing that, open up a terminal (Applications-Accessories-Terminal on the start menu), and type (or copy and paste):

sudo install ~/Desktop/hosts /etc/hosts

Of course, replace ~/Desktop/hosts with wherever you saved hosts. Then do

sudo /wyvern/client/wyvernclient/

And you should have the game running! Woot! Note that every time you play wyvern, you may have to type "sudo /wyvern/client/wyvernclient", but you are probably already used to that if you're using Ubuntu.
