Re: [Xen-users] 'Link veth0 is missing' - caused by having no 'ip' command

Hi Richard,

don't know which distro you are using, but the ip command is in a
package normally called as iputils.
I'm surprised that you don't have it installed in your distro, because
it's the "modern" way of configuring networking under Linux
