Check that you have at least localhost correctly set in /etc/hosts, and (if you have named your machine, check with hostname command) possibly a valid IP for your hostname.

localhost should have IP 127.0.0.1

Possibly you should configure your resolver too (if you have valid DNS server(s) on your local network).
