sudo setcap gives "Failed to set capabilities on file `/usr/bin/hcitool' (Operation not supported)"

Mon Jan 14, 2019 3:26 am

I tried this

Code: Select all

sudo setcap cap_net_raw+ep /usr/bin/hcitool 
But I get
Failed to set capabilities on file `/usr/bin/hcitool' (Operation not supported)

I'm running Raspbian release date 2018-11-13

Why can I not setcap?
