It *does* have to do with the dialout group, at least on my system (maybe due
to harden_suse and the "secure" permission stuff)?
Please try a ping as user nobody and look if it works. For me, it does *only*
if nobody is part of the dialout group. The second I delete nobody from
dialout (/etc/group), it doesn't any longer.
Maybe someone from the SuSE team can explain this? To be honest, I don't
understand how (and where) this works myself. Should be interesting! =8,
