That value is always the same. I went into the Sharing options, per some Googling, and I can see Gregg Bolinger’s iMac as the Computer Name and Gregg-Bolingers-iMac.local as the Local Hostname. Any ideas on how I can fix the Terminal?

I have the following in my .bashrc to define the prompt as username, host and folder:

export PS1="\u@\h:\W$ "

Examples:

bear@Kodiak:~$

bear@Kodiak:Development$
