User Notes:

Installation of Net-tools[Note]Note

The Net-tools package installs a hostname program which will overwrite the existing program installed by Coreutils during a base LFS installation. If, for whatever reason, you need to reinstall the Coreutils package after installing Net-tools, you should apply the coreutils-6.9-suppress_hostname-1.patch patch (after the other patches) if you wish to preserve the Net-tools hostname program.

The instructions below automate the configuration process by piping yes to the make config command. If you wish to run the interactive configuration process (by changing the instruction to just make config), but you are not sure how to answer all the questions, then just accept the defaults. This will be just fine in the majority of cases. What you’re asked here is a bunch of questions about which network protocols you’ve enabled in your kernel. The default answers will enable the tools from this package to work with the most common protocols: TCP, PPP, and several others. You still need to actually enable these protocols in the kernel—what you do here is merely tell the package to include support for those protocols in its programs, but it’s up to the kernel to make the protocols available.

Install Net-tools by running the following commands:

patch -Np1 -i ../net-tools-1.60-gcc34-3.patch &&patch -Np1 -i ../net-tools-1.60-kernel_headers-2.patch &&patch -Np1 -i ../net-tools-1.60-mii_ioctl-1.patch &&yes "" | make config &&sed -i -e 's|HAVE_IP_TOOLS 0|HAVE_IP_TOOLS 1|g' -e 's|HAVE_MII 0|HAVE_MII 1|g' config.h &&sed -i -e 's|# HAVE_IP_TOOLS=0|HAVE_IP_TOOLS=1|g' -e 's|# HAVE_MII=0|HAVE_MII=1|g' config.make &&make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make updateCommand Explanations

yes "" | make config: Piping yes to make config skips the interactive configuration and accepts the defaults.

sed -i -e …: These two seds change the configuration files to force building the ipmaddr, iptunnel and mii-tool programs.

ContentsInstalled Programs: arp, dnsdomainname, domainname, hostname, ifconfig, ipmaddr, iptunnel, mii-tool, nameif, netstat, nisdomainname, plipconfig, rarp, route, slattach, and ypdomainnameInstalled Libraries: NoneInstalled Directories: NoneShort Descriptions


is used to manipulate the kernel’s ARP cache, usually to add or delete an entry, or to dump the entire cache.


reports the system’s DNS domain name.


reports or sets the system’s NIS/YP domain name.


reports or sets the name of the current host system.


is the main utility for configuring network interfaces.


adds, deletes and shows an interface’s multicast addresses.


adds, changes, deletes and shows an interface’s tunnels.


checks or sets the status of a network interface’s Media Independent Interface (MII) unit.


names network interfaces based on MAC addresses.


is used to report network connections, routing tables, and interface statistics.


does the same as domainname.


is used to fine tune the PLIP device parameters, to improve its performance.


is used to manipulate the kernel’s RARP table.


is used to manipulate the IP routing table.


attaches a network interface to a serial line. This allows you to use normal terminal lines for point-to-point links to other computers.


does the same as domainname.

安装指导参见: the 节 called 安装 Net-tools-1.60 在 第 6 章.


Net-tools (1.60):

Net-tools Mii-Tool-Gcc33 Patch:


Net-tools 包含一系列程序,构成了 Linux 网络的基础。

安装下列程序: arp, dnsdomainname (link to hostname), domainname (link to hostname), hostname, ifconfig, nameif, netstat, nisdomainname (link to hostname), plipconfig, rarp, route, slattach 和 ypdomainname (link to hostname)




domainname显示系统的 NIS/YP 域名。


ifconfig 用来配置网络接口。



nisdomainname 同domainname。

plipconfig 用来优化PLIP设备的参数以加快该设备的速度。

rarp 和arp命令类似,处理操作系统的RARP(逆向地址解析协议)表。

route 用来管理IP路由表。

slattach 将某个网络接口对应为串行线,例如将一个通常的终端线添加为某种网络模。


Net-tools 安装依赖关系

Net-tools 依赖于: Bash, Binutils, Coreutils, GCC, Glibc, Make.
