I've just tested the latest stable version 0.3.9 with the same result.

The strace output is the following (the relevant part of it):
socket(PF_PACKET, SOCK_RAW, 36488)      = 3
ioctl(3, 0x8933, 0xbffffbac)            = 0
bind(3, {sin_family=AF_PACKET, proto=0x888e, if3, pkttype=0, addr(0)={0, 
}, 20) = 0
ioctl(3, 0x8927, 0xbffffbac)            = 0
socket(PF_PACKET, SOCK_RAW, 768)        = 4
ioctl(4, 0x8933, 0xbffffbac)            = -1 ENODEV (No such device)
dup(2)                                  = 5
fcntl64(5, F_GETFL)                     = 0x8001 (flags 
O_WRONLY|O_LARGEFILE)
close(5)                                = 0
write(2, "ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX): No such dev"..., 36ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX): 
No such device
) = 36

Does anyone have an idea?

Thank you,
	Nico
