Problems with ARP on 2.2.X

Hello all,

I figure this is probably the best place for such a question - I'm using
Debian 2.1 (slink) and have compiled the 2.2.5 kernel. When I try to
delete an address from the arp table I get:

Sorry about that - lets try again:

Hello all,

I figure this is probably the best place for such a question - I'm using

Debian 2.1 (slink) and have compiled the 2.2.5 kernel. When I try to
delete an address from the arp table I get:

SIOCDARP(pub): No such file or directory

and similarly with ppp (and proxyarp):

Apr  9 14:50:02 svr-new pppd[328]: ioctl(SIOCDARP): No such file or
directory(2)

Reading the man(8) page for arp, I find that it wants to see
/proc/net/arp, which exists and contains entries like:

IP address       HW type     Flags       HW address            Mask
Device
A.B.C.D   0x1         0x2         AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF
*                 eth0

From http://www.debian.org/releases/slink/running-kernel-2.2 I see that
slink is certified for 2.0.X but not for 2.2.X and that there are some
known issues. However there is no mention of arp.

Anyone?

Thanks in advance.
