In my environment this isn't enough; I also had to add the line


or the service wouldn't start, and I then had to remove the line


or ping would still fail (event with CAP_NET_RAW enabled).

Yes, my solution is:
systemctl edit prometheus-blackbox-exporter.service

and typ:


(that produce a file under /etc/systemd/system/prometheus-blackbox-exporter.service.d/override.conf)

That is update save ... because the maintainer of this package is not willing to read bug reports ... ;(

The defect in the service file still exists, and people who want to use this package for ICMP still need to patch it manually.
