/etc/hosts :
::1 localhost.mydomain.tld localhost localhost.mydomain.tld localhost

/etc/defaults/rc.conf :
ifconfig_lo0="inet"   # default loopback device configuration.
... but ifconfig always shows no inet:
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
        inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
        inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128

so we added to /etc/rc.conf :
ifconfig_lo0="inet netmask"
... still not inet4 loopback if (so commented it out).
no errors in /var/log/messages,
dmesg -a shows no error,
... other than services failing to grab ports on


Do you have network_interfaces set to something different than "auto" in /etc/rc.conf?

I read this thread but missed that some pkg_add added network_interfaces in rc.conf, and left out "lo"

thanks, Yuri
