Description

You cannot use ping from the command line and receive this error: ping: socket: Operation not permitted

A workaround is running ping from /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs/bin/ping google.com

Linking /bin/ping to /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs/bin/ping might fix this issue

Tor can not send ICMP packets, but I guess your workaround might be useful for programs that need File Capabilities (Are there any more?) to function until tails switches to overlayfs.

Hi bat,

Indeed, regardless of extended file attributes, ping google.com is not going to work anyway.

So I'd like us to take a step back: what user-facing problem are we trying to solve here?
