(i accidentally mailed this off-list, but it was the solution to the
problem, so i'm just posting it for the benefit of the archive)
i just did a test on my machine and this output seems consistent with
not having the "lo" (loopback) network device set up - this was
mentioned by frank in an earlier post. i've had the same problem with a
debian install before, so here are some verbose instructions on setting
first test to see if you have the loopback defice. if you have it, the
output of "ifconfig lo" will look like this:
root at oto:~$ ifconfig lo
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:100 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:100 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:7989 (7.8 KiB) TX bytes:7989 (7.8 KiB)
note the "UP" on the 3rd line of output.
if you don't see this, then (on debian) add the following two lines to
iface lo inet loopback
the "auto lo" line means that next time you reboot, it will come up
automatically, but to quickly do this without rebooting, run "ifup lo".
now running "pd" should present you with the tk interface we all
