NFS dependent on 'lo' interface
I was trying to start the nfs service on my pc with the 'lo' interface turned off. It show me some kind of error. When I learned nfs I didn't ever heard of it being dependent on "lo" interface. What is actually happening , my eth0 is up and working fine.Only if I could understand the man pages

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
The 'lo' interface is the localhost. You never want to disable that as many services use it to talk to the local system via a known address (127.0.0.1). I don't know the internals of NFS well enough to know why it needs it, but I am not surprised that it does.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
