RE: ifconfig command not available in FC7 test2



Cool...I did not know the ip command! 

Now it gets even weirder. For the heck of it, I typed the ip addr command on the Dell 3000...it works fine. I typed it from the Dell 2400 and it says "command not found". Bizarre  since its all booting from the same CD.

Type, as root,  'ip addr'.  Also 'system-config-network' and/or
'NetworkManager' applet will provide that information.

'ifconfig' is a part of  net-tools-1.60-79.fc7, as for now,
package.  Quite possible it was omitted from LiveCD to save
some space.  It does not do anything more than 'ip' which
can also do many other things.

For a quick peek how 'ip' works look how it is used in
/sbin/ifup script and also try to type things like 'ip help',
'ip addr help' and similar.
