Strange TCP with 2.5.60

Trying to use traceroute i get folowing error:

root@larry:~# uname -a
Linux larry 2.5.60 #20 Tue Feb 11 17:38:42 EET 2003 i686 unknown
root@larry:~# traceroute
traceroute: findsaddr: Can't find interface

Networking works....... but command route can't give me the status of
default route:

root@larry:~# route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use
Iface U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 lo
root@larry:~# ip route list dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src dev lo scope link
default via dev eth0 metric 1

The version of traceroute is 1.4a12
The version of route is net-tools 1.60 / route 1.98 (2001-04-15)

iptables doesn't work as expected too.....

root@larry:~# iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
root@larry:~# iptables -L -n
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT all --

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

everything works fine with 2.5.59 and 2.4.20

I can provide any additional information if needed
