    Trace route -SUSE 9.1 How to?


    Linux newbie here,
    I would like to know if trace route is installed with a default installation. I looked in YAST under software and found Net_tools installed but it does not include a trace route program.
    I just want one I can run in bash.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I know the traceroute command is installed in 9.2 by default, and I'm pretty sure it is in 9.1 as well. You do have to run the command as root. Try (in a terminal as root)
    Code:
    traceroute 4.2.2.2
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Thanks. It worked, but I swore I tried it as root the first time. O well, I probably made a typo.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    You probably don't need to run it as root, but it's probably in /usr/sbin, which is probably not in a normal user's path.
