A little clarification is requested. What does this openrc elog message mean?

Quote:

In this version of OpenRC, the loopback interface no longer
satisfies the net virtual.
If you have services now which do not start because of this,
They can be fixed by adding rc_need="!net"
to the /etc/conf.d/<servicename> file


What file is <servicename>?

What would the <servicename> file look like after adding the specified
Quote:
rc_need="!net"


I did suffer from network interfaces that did not come up and solved the problem by explicitly adding them, i.e. net.eth0, to default using rc-update. I don't believe I have services that do not start, but the elog is so cryptic I can't be certain what it may be referring to.

the loopback interface -> 127.0.0.1, net.lo, localhost
doesn't provide anymore "net" services.

So if you have any services that need "net" to be running, previously, just setting the loopback interface on provide "net" to them.
Now this will fail.

And if you don't know what is servicename, it's just because you have no service that are stuck by this new feature.

Per example, you can guess easy that nfs service depend on "net" service.
Previously running without ethernet/wifi... but with a loopback, it was enough to start nfs.
Now as loopback doesn't gave "net", nfs will not start if no other service provide "net".
It mean until you have (still per example) /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start, /etc/init.d/nfs cannot start because no one gave it "net", and this even if you have /etc/init.d/net.lo started

Clearer ?
