[aclug-L] traceroute: icmp socket: Operation not permitted

Any time I try to run traceroute, demostrated last night, I get the
traceroute: icmp socket: Operation not permitted
no matter if I point it to an Internet host or localhost. I checked
/etc/inetd.conf and /etc/services and find no mention of icmp. In
/etc/protocols, icmp is listed and shown to be enabled. I checked my
kernel config and the only option I see is that the dropping of source
routed frames is enabled per config's recommendation. Otherwise, I'm at
a loss as to how to enable this. BTW, I get the same error both as a
user and as root, so I'm doubting a permissions problem.
I just installed BIND 8.1.2 today and the error existed before. named
seems to be caching per the DNS-HOWTO, so I doubt DNS is the cause.
Anybody have an idea? Running a heavily modified Slackware '96.
