Hi all !

Basic utilities such as "ifconfig" do not work under user account, but
only under root.

ifconfig has been deprecated for years and only still included so that
scripts don't break afaik.

Use "ip" which is in the normal users' path and provides a superset of
the functionality of ifconfig.

This doesn't preclude adding sbin to users' path for other reasons though.

/sbin/ifconfig works most of the time, when IP never works without obscure options...
