On mainline images provided by Olimex, a standard user can not use the ping command : it always ends up with the following message :
Quoteping: socket: Operation not permitted

Running the same ping command as root (or with sudo) works as expected.

I had mentioned this problem in June 2020 :

and got this answer from Olimex a few days later :
Quoteour developers work on this, there will be fix soon

Well, this problem is still there with latest images from Olimex (currently A64-OLinuXino-buster-minimal-20201217-194545.img)
The workaround mentioned in seems to work
