From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9 i686)

Description of problem:
I upgraded my kernel to 2.4.9 and then all of a sudden started getting the
following error when I tried to bring the loopback interface up during
boot:

Cannot send dump request: Illegal seek

I read through the scripts and tracked it down to /usr/sbin/usernetctl.  I
get the same error when I type usernetctl lo up


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.32-1


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Upgrade to kernel 2.4.9 using the tar.bz2 package
2.  Compile and install the new kernel
3.  Reboot
	

Actual Results:  I started getting the error imediately on reboot		

Expected Results:  the loopback interface should have been brought up

You need to turn on CONFIG_NETLINK and CONFIG_RTNETLINK.
