PrinceAMD@Elive[~]$ ifconfig
bash: ifconfig: command not found
root@Elive[/home/PrinceAMD]# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1b:b9:65:68:95  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::21b:b9ff:fe65:6895/64 Scope:Link
etc etc etc

well now u know u have to run it in root, do ur best
the reason for this is cause ifconfig does not just let u see the network config but u can also configure the networking using it emosmile thats why u need to be root.
