[opensuse-packaging] Fwd: Replace setuid bit to cap_net_raw capability
Hello list,

I'm Ubuntu fugitive and frequent user of mtr utility
( In
ubuntu mtr could be run by restricted user, but not in OpenSUSE,
complaining with "unable to get raw sockets" message.

By adding cap_net_raw capability to /usr/sbin/mtr with

sudo /sbin/setcap cap_net_raw+ep /usr/sbin/mtr

(found in libcap-progs package) and then fixing permissions by
removing suid bit and making all users run it with

sudo chmod -s+rx /usr/sbin/mtr

I've managed to successfully run mtr as unprivileged user.

I'm almost sure that capabilities cannot be transferred across rpm
which means I should add libcap-progs as a runtime dependency, and
update permissions/add capability during package installation. Am I

Thanks in advance.
