Description of problem:
On a clean install of FC2 Test 1, the /sbin directory is not set in the path variable for standard users (it IS for Root). As such, utilities such as ifconfig do not work out of the box. It is easy to workaround this problem by modifying the path in any number of ways, but /sbin should be part of the default path.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC2 Test 1
3.Run ifconfig from a terminal
Actual Results: ifconfig can not be found
Expected Results: ifconfig should run
Intentional. It has always been this way, incidentally.
