hi guys, in dlls/icmp/icmp_main.c would it be possible to use
system("/bin/ping..."); if not running as uid 0?, (or using pipes if the
ouput needs to be parsed) as /bin/ping is obviously usually suid root and if
the required options are available as arguments to /bin/ping then wine can
do as requested without running as root, this would be useful to me with
something im working on.
if you guys do consider it a possibility, i would be willing to research it
and write the patch, id just like the go-ahead from you :) if you can think
of any other way round it, id be greatful to hear your suggestions.
