I recently installed nagios 1.2 with RedHat 7.3 but I have a problem with 
the check_ping plugin when its running from comand line and the service 
checked in nagios dont look ok (unknown)...

[prompt]# ./check_ping -H -w 300.0,20% -c 500.0,30% -p 1
/bin/ping -n -U -c 1
Error: Could not interpret output from ping command

but when i execute ping from command line there is not problem

[prompt]# /bin/ping -n -U -c 1
PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=1.51 ms

--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.517/1.517/1.517/0.000 ms

I could see in a past post no one respond a similar question ...

this is the version of check_ping
[prompt]# ./check_ping -V
check_ping (nagios-plugins 1.4.0alpha1) 1.25
