SUMMARY:traceroute 1.45a

I made the bone-head error in not realizing that I was dl'ing a Solaris
2.5 traceroute 1.45a binary instead of a Solaris 2.4 one. The consensus
is to just compile your own damn software when possible! I agree. I was
just looking for a quick fix for a client that doesn't have a compiler
and may not want to get one either free (gcc) or not free (cc). So what
I'll do is just get on from a guy who offered to give me one and hope
for the best (thanks guy).

All: Thanks again guys.

Orig Question:
I'm having a hell of a time trying to get traceroute to run. I
downloaded a binary from I run
pkgadd -d <pathname to package> and that goes well. However, when I try
to run it I get:

sparc10{jason}57: ./traceroute
traceroute: Warning: ckecksums disabled

When I try to run it to count hops from one server to another I get:

sparc10{jason}89: ./traceroute sparc4 (one of our servers)
traceroute: Warning: ckecksums disabled ./traceroute: fatal: relocation error: symbol not found:
setlinebuf: referenced in ./traceroute

To note, I'm running Solaris 2.4 on a Sparc10. Can anyone help me out?
