Otherwise, check your sudoers file and see if wheel is the following


%wheel ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL


If it is, then when you setup hobbit server (doing the ./configure -server)
when it asks about the command for fping, put in sudo fping instead.

As root, you need to change the owner of "fping" to root and the permissions
to 4755.

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.
