This means, most likely, that the suid bit for ping isn't set. You can
enable this by chmod +s `which ping`, but do so at your own
discretion. `suid` means that the program, rather than running under
the user who invokes it, runs under the owner of the file (in this case,
root. Only root can open a raw socket).
