Installation problems

I've installed the MySQL package from the entropy website, and I have tried running the following command in Terminal:

type "sudo ./scripts/mysql_install_db", enter administrator password when asked
After entering my password, I got an error saying:

"Sorry, the host 'macktheknife.local.' could not be looked up. Please configure the 'hostname' command to return a correct hostname."

Any suggestions?
