Silly question! You must not have spent much time here yet! :-))
OK. My (B)LFS setup is like yours. Doesn't show lo in netstat -rn.
But I go through a gateway on another machine. On that machine, I have
a file, /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/if-cfg.lo. On your LFS it should
probably something like
and should have something along these lines. Since these are from a RH
6.0, there should be some differences. But a little grunging around should
get you where you need to be.
DEVICE=lo # May not need this one?
NETWORK=127.0.0.0 # May not need this one?
