I dont have internet/networked comp. at home anymore, but i would like to run an mpd demon.
Ive been searchin aroudn for a while on how to do it but with no luck.
Can anyone explain how to do this?
well, even if you don't have an ethernet card, there is still a "network" ... basically, there's a network address for the local computer.
you must've removed the network daemon. put it back in, and set up your rc.conf interfaces=(lo)
lo means loopback, so the kernel makes a fake ethernet card that only sees your computer. that way anything that's trying to access the network address 127.0.0.1 or localhost will still work.
you would have a lot of gnome issues without this too, but i guess you're one of us folks that don't like huge desktop environments
Worked like a charm!
Thanks a bunch.
