    hello and welcome, rabbirashid!

    have you tried to install the traceroute package, which contains a userland tool that you can execute in the terminal?

    in a terminal, do this as root:

    Code:
    yum install traceroute
    once it installs, you can then run a traceroute in your terminal, i.e.:

    Code:
    traceroute www.google.com
    to get an idea of program usage syntax, you can do:

    Code:
    traceroute --help
    to read the documentation, you can do:

    Code:
    man traceroute

    Hi,
    thank you very much for your answer...But actually I want to know if I can run the source code for trace route separately...I want to run the traceroute.c file separately after copying it from kernel...I know there are a lot of header files and other dependencies....But it would be really helpful even if I get a brief scratch idea about doing this...

    thanks again...
    rabbi

    in the Linux kernel? i don't see it in the source - do you have a link to the location of this file?
