After I have build my LFS-System completely according the documentations
of version 6.3 I tried to boot it. The kernel was build with the "make
defconfig" command, to provide only the default functionalities and
modules. After entering the third runlevel my local IP address was set
to "192.168.178.20". After that the bootscript tried to add my default
gateway with the following IP address: "192.168.178.1". The script uses
following command to do this: ip route add default via 192.168.178.1 dev
eth0. This errror occurs: "RTNETLINK answers: invalid argument". I think
that's an invironmental problem, may be I forgot to set an option in the
kernel configuration or something linke that. However, I don't know how
to configure the kernel so that RTNETLINK works properly. All
funktionalities of the "ip" command are working fine, just when a
combination with "via" is used it prints out this error.
Excuse my bad english, I'm just a german.
Please help me.
