Subject: can't ifconfig

I can not use the ifconfig command.   When I type ifconfig, I get the
following command:

bash: ifconfig: command not found

I then typed the command updatedb

I then typed the command locate ifconfig, which gave me the following
output:

/sbin/ifconfig
/usr/share/man/de/man8/ifconfig.8.gz
/usr/share/man/fr/man8/ifconfig.8.gz
/usr/share/man/man8/ifconfig.8.gz
/usr/share/man/pt/man8/ifconfig.8.gz

Do I need to install ifconfig? If so, how do I do that?

On the command prompt you see something like

[olivares localhost ~]$ ifconfig
bash: ifconfig: command not found

To get ifconfig to work you need to become superuser (type su -) on command prompt and ifconfig should work as shown below 

[olivares localhost ~]$ su -
Password: 
[root localhost ~]# ifconfig

[root localhost ~]# 

or alternatively you can use /sbin/ifconfig as follows

[olivares localhost ~]$ /sbin/ifconfig
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:190 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:190 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:34344 (33.5 KiB)  TX bytes:34344 (33.5 KiB)

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol  
          inet addr:66.201.8.31  P-t-P:66.201.8.6  Mask:255.255.255.255
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:1889 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:2328 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
