traceroute problem


when I type (as root):
traceroute address

I get:
ifaddrlist: SIOCGIFFLAGS: : No such device

also when I type:
ifconfig -a

I get:
: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Thought ifconfig eth0 works fine....


I'm running debian/sid with 2.4.22 kernel....

Any ideas how to fix this problem...

I know it works because I have a 7 computer debian network and the machine giving this error is my main workstation... And to type this.... my main workstation eth0 goes to my s/w, then to my NAT then to the NET.... so It working fine.... cause I can surfing and get data off my file-server AND yes PING everybody in the network..

/etc/rc.d/init.d/ network status is just (in debian)
/etc/init.d/networking status
though status is not an option.... only {start|stop|restart|force-reload}

here is /etc/network/interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
# (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.21
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255
gateway 192.168.0.1


any idea??

No well.... I solved it.... just for google surfers... the solution is:

cd /usr/src/linux
make xconfig | make menuconfig
go to: networking options > DECnet Support
and click N/M (NOT Y, thats the problem) to "DECnet Support" or "DECnet: SIOCGIFCONF support"

I thought is was a kernel problem.... i.e. shouldn't of installed something....
