Angry ifconfig dont work with new kernel


I installed the new kernel on reh hat 9, the install went ok and all, but now if I try to use ifconfig It says this:
bash: ifconfig: command not found
[root@

Anyone have any idea on whats going on?

Did you try /sbin/ifconfig? In all the rh versions I've tried /sbin is not in PATH so you have to give the complete path to anything in /sbin which is where ifconfig is located.

And make sure you're root. You probably know that since you've used ifconfig before but just making sure.

If you are root -- /sbin should ALWAYS be part of your path.

do a "echo $PATH" and see if /sbin if there. If not make sure /etc/profile is adding it in and not /root/.profile is over writing it.

Ok, The /sbin/ifconfig works. In red hat 6 I have never had to do the /sbin first. I guess something with the new kernel I installed changed it. Thanks for your help.
