Solved this with

sudo pip install --upgrade netifaces

(Similar to Jochen's answer above, this upgrades python netifaces.)

I've had the same problem on Ubuntu 12.04 and fixed it by installing python-netifaces from 12.10.

I had the same problem but I already installed python-netifaces from 12.04. But I still got the same question. How did you install python-netifaces from 12.10?
