Hi,
   I am trying to install UML 2.4.27 on a Fedora Core (kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4smp) and facing problem while starting UML with networking using slirp-1.0.14pre1 by the following command:
./linux eth0=slirp,,./slirp mem=96M

The kernel loads, but I get the following errors while the kernel boots (I am specifically interested in knowing why network is not working here)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Checking for the skas3 patch in the host...not found
Checking for /proc/mm...not found
Checking PROT_EXEC mmap in /tmp...OK
Adding 17272832 bytes to physical memory to account for exec-shield gap

Configuring eth0:
ifconfig eth0 10.0.2.15 broadcast 10.0.2.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
slirp_tramp failed - errno = 22
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument
SIOCADDRT: Network is down
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I run ifconfig command after logging in as root, I get the same error as mentioned above.

Someone please tell me if there is something wrong here.

Thanks in advance,
Susmit
