Writing init script for Firestarter on updated Fedora 1 (today)


Hello,

Apparently Firestarter (latest version) does not support the new kernel in Fedora 1 (updated today).. or maybe Fedora at all I don't know..

but I'm stuck with it not loading as a service at startup.. umm.. how would I write an init script for it? any ideas? should I just download a different frontend for iptables? any better ones out there?

thx...

Have you tried the firestarter package from http://fedora.us yet? If it fails in the same way, how about submitting a bug report? http://bugzilla.fedora.us

I just tried then... I did an rpm -i --force on it as root...

but when I rebooted still nothing..

I currently had it installed, but from source... and I have to manually start it at the moment everytime..

When you use --force we can stop this topic right here.

The package should install cleanly without any use of --force or --nodeps. It includes a working initscript, which can be examined and enabled/disabled with the standard helper tools, e.g.

chkconfig firestarter --list
chkconfig firestarter on
service firestarter restart


and so on.

Nobody other than you yourself knows how messed up your Firestarter installation is actually.

I would recommend you uninstall any firestarter package, then clean up any firestarter files which have been left over from your source installation attempts, and then install firestarter from rpm.
