The list archive is your friend.

This was covered on the list recently - coincidentally, I tried going
potato->woody yesterday, found the same thing and used the manual fix suggested
on the list. I've now returned to potato for other reasons, however (need
Netscape working to access online bank - Netscape bus errors on Woody glibc).

The problem appears to be in glibc. The workaround is to comment out


from /etc/init.d/networking, and replace it with manual ifconfig/route
commands, e.g.

        /sbin/ifconfig eth0 <your-ip>
        /sbin/route add default <your-gateway>
