gentoo dnsmasq issues

I keep getting these errors in my dnsmasq.log file:

Jun 22 21:34:48 fire dnsmasq[28990]: DHCPACK(eth1) 192.168.333.100 00:13:8f:c7:b7:31 gamer5
Jun 22 21:34:48 fire dnsmasq[28990]: not giving name gamer1 to the DHCP lease of 192.168.333.126 because the name exists in /etc/hosts with address 192.168.333.67
Jun 22 21:34:48 fire dnsmasq[28990]: not giving name gamer2 to the DHCP lease of 192.168.333.43 because the name exists in /etc/hosts with address 192.168.333.94

Very annoying, because it means that the IPs I've assigned to these machines aren't making it somehow.

After researching it looks like I may have put too much info into the /etc/dnsmasq.conf file:

dhcp-host=00:02:RR:0F:8E:RR,192.168.333.34,gamer8
dhcp-host=00:06:RR:70:00:RR,192.168.333.63,gamer9

I will remove the host name from this and see if that fixes it.

Update - this works great - guess too much info can be an issue.

Solution looks likes this:

dhcp-host=00:02:RR:0F:8E:RR,192.168.333.34
dhcp-host=00:06:RR:70:00:RR,192.168.333.63

----

Also: to delete the current dnsmasq DHCP leases:

# /etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop
# nano /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases - remove offending entries
# /etc/init.d/dnsmasq start
