Hi All.

Any time I try to run traceroute, demostrated last night, I get the
following error:

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.
