Hello, in Fedora 17 ethernet does not show up for some reason:

ethernet eth0 {
  format_up = "E: %ip"
  format_down = "E: down"
}

$ i3status
...E: down...

$ LC_ALL=C ifconfig

What is the trick in my case? I have bridge configured in my Fedora. Tried also this:

sudo setcap cap_net_admin=ep $(which i3status)

with no help. Thanks!

Your network interface is named em1, but your config for i3status is for eth0. Change it in the config and you should be fine.
