ifconfig is old and only knows about named interface addresses. stable
tools always created named interface addresses using ifconfig, but the
alpha tools use iproute to setup networking and thus can create nameless
interface addresses. Those are not listed by ifconfig, but you can use
"ip addr show" or just "ip a" instead. If you want named interfaces
addresses, you have to tell the tools about that, please check the flower
page for details, i don't remember them ;)
ifconfig shouldn't segfault though... strace available?
