Post bash: ping: command not found

why "ping" command not exist on Debian Jessie x64 by default?

$ /bin/p
pidof ps pwd

$ /usr/sbin/p
pam-auth-update pppdump pwck
pam_getenv pppoe-discovery pwconv
pam_timestamp_check pppstats pwunconv
paperconfig psad
pppd psadwatchd

It all depends on the distro, as far as I think...
I assume a real home desktop to have little use for ping...
So, you installed it afterwards, good for you
By the way - wrap code and such in proper tags makes things easier to read...

That is odd, because on my installs, they've all had ping installed by default. What options are you selecting in the task selection stage of install?
