If this is a fresh install, you have probably been bitten by the bug
in the install system failing to configure the loopback interface.
The correct fix is probably to add the following to
# The loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback
It should have been added by the install program, but sometimes it
failed to do so. The bug is believed fixed in the latest source.
