    You should already have all of this. What distro are you using? I've never heard of 'sing'.

    Hi psic,

    I'm building BLFS 6.1. It has

    Net-tools-1.60
    http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...net-tools.html

    which is quite complete but without "ping' command or maybe some others. So I start to search them.

    Once you install the net-tools package, you should have the following installed:
    arp, dnsdomainname, domainname, hostname, ifconfig, ipmaddr, iptunnel, mii-tool, nameif, netstat, nisdomainname, plipconfig, rarp, route, slattach, and ypdomainname

    You should also install the package iputils, which should have the one ping... (which is in the land of Redmond, where the shadows lie, )

    Hi psic,

    Tks for your advice.

    You should also install the package iputils, which should have the one ping... (which is in the land of Redmond, where the shadows lie
    I have following packages downloaded;
    iputils_20020927.orig.tar.gz
    ping-1.0-1.tar.bz2
    tcpip-0.17-i486-31.tgz

    Will the tools provided by "iputils_20020927.orig.tar.gz" crossing that of net-tools which is running on the box. If YES, whether there will be conflict?

    I'm not sure whther "ping-1.0-1.tar.bz2" is the command which I'm searching. I just download it from "Tuxfind" website.

    I don't think there should be a conflict, just try installing the iputils package. In Kanotix (debian based), I see three iputils packages:
    iputils-arping
    iputils-ping
    iputils-tracepath

    I think your iputils probably has all three.
