no ifconfig

Hi all,
I see that the ifconfig command (and probably all other deprecated net commands) has been removed from Tumbleweed with the latest upgrades.
This is fine: I can learn to use the “ip” comand.

The problem is that there are scripts out there that rely on ifconfig being available. One example is the “” script included with the VMware tools for Linux.

I am not very fluent in perl, so I cannot patch the script to use ip instead of ifconfig.

I tried to google around to see if someone had written a script to imitate ifconfig using ip, but it seems noone did.
Can someone help with my problem?

Thank you in advance.

Never mind: I solved installing net-tools-deprecated.


Thanks for reporting the solution/bypass.
