Re: [alpine-devel] ping: ping is not a valid applet

You should be able to use ping as a non-root user by setting
the ping_group_range in sys/net/ipv4 to the appropriate group(s).
See 'man 7 icmp' for details.

Maybe we should figure out a sensible default we can supply with an
alpine-base installation.
