iptables-restore fails on boot with custom kernel
Ever since I built my own kernel in FC5, the "applying firewall settings" stage in the Red Hat graphical boot has failed, showing "iptables-restore: line 20 failed". The boot log didn't have any more information, so I looked in the iptables config file and found that line 20 had 'COMMIT' on it - just to make sure, I tried using iptables-restore with a file containing only COMMIT, and it failed on the first line. I've checked my kernel configuration a few times (I didn't even touch the networking options much, I was just trying to get it over with quickly so I could build ndiswrapper and a few other modules), and all the iptables options are enabled. Any idea what's going on? I've seen other threads on this same subject from other people saying that their problem was with the kernel configuration, but I'm sure I've enabled everything.
