iptable problem kernel 2.6.16-r3


Recommended Posts

I've just installed kernel 2.6.16-r3 on my gentoo box, only to run in to a strange problem...

 

rivendale ~ # /etc/init.d/iptables start

* Loading iptables state and starting firewall ...

FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.

iptables-restore v1.3.4: iptables-restore: unable to initializetable 'nat'

 

Error occurred at line: 2

Try `iptables-restore -h' or 'iptables-restore --help' for more informat [ !! ]

 

I recieved the following error while booting into this new kernel so I then checked to see if it was set as a module...

 

rivendale ~ # grep -i netfilter /usr/src/linux/.config

 

CONFIG_NETFILTER=y <-------

# CONFIG_NETFILTER_DEBUG is not set

# Core Netfilter Configuration

# CONFIG_NETFILTER_NETLINK is not set

# CONFIG_NETFILTER_XTABLES is not set

# IP: Netfilter Configuration

 

then i did the following:

 

rivendale ~ # echo "ip_tables" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.16-gentoo-r3 && modules-update

 

rivendale ~ # modprobe ip_tables

FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.

 

i'd appreciate any ideas on how to fix this little problem thanks in advance...

Most of the NETFILTER options are under the IP_NF .. grep that :)

 

Example ..CONFIG_IP_NF_NAT :)
