Ticket #12713 (closed defect: fixed)
VBoxNetAdpCtl looks for ifconfig in the wrong path => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||efferre||Owned by:|
VBoxNetAdpCtl uses an hardcoded path for ifconfig, currently /sbin/ifconfig, both in the opensource and binary versions.
/sbin/ifconfig was the standard location until net-tools changed the default location to /bin/ifconfig, this happened a lot of time ago, see commit
I'd strongly suggest to support both paths (at runtime and not configure time) to be compatible with old and new versions of net-tools.
