I have 2.4.1 running on my board with ramdisk loading etc.

However when I try to use ping it says unknown protocol icmp.

I have searched the mailing list archive and made sure that I have correct
/etc/protocols, /etc/services files.

Also I can see eth0 and loopback interface using ifconfig

Anybody knows how to get ping going.
