Re: CUPS? Printer.

What if you try:

cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.bak
dpkg-reconfigure etherconf

This will regenerate interfaces according to the debian configuration.
Being an automated process, it should generate a correct file. Now try

ifdown lo
ifup lo

Could you send me the output of strace ? It can be very usefull for such
debugging purposes.

Now, how to override the normal ifupdown configuration:

create /etc/init.d/my_localhost with these 2 lines

ifconfig lo up


chmod 755 /etc/init.d/my_localhost
ln -s /etc/init.d/my_localhost /etc/rcS.d/S38my_localhost

This script will be executed on boot, just before ifupdown (S39) is

Good Luck!
