BeagleBone running Matt’s traceroute – mtr

Installing mtr on a Beaglebone/Angstrom

mtr(former Matt’s traceroute) is a mix of traceroute and ping, I use it often in network diagnose. Running it on BeagleBone simplifies many things.

As a usual source install:

tar -xzvf mtr-0.82.tar.gz
cd mtr-0.82
make install

well… cursesX is not available… but is ok, I don’t want to run X.
