There are probably better ways to do it, but I know I can find it in the
output from ipconfig on windows and ifconfig on linux, so I tend to go
straight for that and parse what I need.  This seems to work on both for
single IP address systems:

import os,sys

cmd = {'win32':'ipconfig','linux2':'ifconfig'}[sys.platform]

ipaddr = [ i.split(":")[1]
    for i in os.popen(cmd).readlines()
    if i.upper().find(' ADDR')>-1 ][0].split()[0]
