Can anyone help out a Linux newb with this error?
Execution of '/usr/local/sbin/fping -Ae' failed - program not suid root?

I am migrating our monitoring from BB installed on Windows to Hobbit on
Linux.  I was able to successfully install FC4, all of the Hobbit
subcomponents, and Hobbit.  Just this one error has me stumped.  I thought I
corrected it by adding hobbit to the WHEEL group on FC and then editing
sudoers file to uncomment WHEEL, but I still have the error.
