Description Gordon Messmer 2000-03-03 18:18:40 EST
ping -c has been noted to fail, and was recorded as "fixed" in rawhide.
However, it is still broken in the Red Hat 6.2 beta.  Can this be verified
before the release?

The behavior of ping -c is not broken, its has changed. This has been verified
repeatedly. Use -w secs if you wish to use ping to check if a host is up.
