iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `filter'


Hi,

I just updated to linux kernel 2.1.22 and when trying to use iptables, I get the following answer:

# iptables -L
iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

I read on other forums that it could come from the /boot/config file. And it should be true, when I compare my file to old ones I see that lot of things aren't configured.
Let's look at its Networking part:

The problem I see is in "# CONFIG_NETFILTER is not set".
Try to set this as module. If it still doesn't works, then try to set ALL the netfilter related stuff.

I will try to rebuild my kernel from the beginning but if you have any idea, it would be great...

thanks in advance,

Ok, before any further, be sure you have loaded the following modules:

ip_tables
ip_conntrack
iptable_filter
ipt_state


use the command: #lsmod | grep ip


If these modules aren't loaded, then use the following commands:

modprobe ip_tables
modprobe ip_conntrack
modprobe iptable_filter
modprobe ipt_state


All the modules are loaded?
Yes?

If the answer is "yes", then just let us know it and I will think about other possibilities.

If you don't, then you're gonna need to recompile your kernel with these modules.

How are you doing to recompile it?

Do you use the following commands to recompile it?

make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make && make install && make modules && make modules_install

If you don't, then what do you use?


This website might be helpful too:

Quote:
Getting and Installing iptables

Your distribution may have installed iptables, and it almost certainly did if your kernel has Netfilter support. But if you want the very latest, you'll probably have to get it from the Netfilter site. Netfilter is available at netfilter.filewatcher.org. Download and compile it according to the instructions in the INSTALL file. The following instructions assume the kernel sources are in /usr/src/linux. If not, adjust the following instructions appropriately. If you need to run

make pending-patches KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux

or

make patch-o-matic KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux

then you'll need to recompile your kernel before continuing. Otherwise, you can ignore these two commands. In general, the patch-o-matic is for users with special needs and is of interest to the average user.

After running

make KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux

run

make install KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux

You're now ready to use iptables.

Ok, thanks a lot now it's working.

I didn't installed iptables well, so thanks to

make KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux
make install KERNEL_DIR=/usr/src/linux

after running it I recompiled my kernek with:

make dep
make bzIamge
make
make install
make modules

then I copied the created files, modified grub and I can finally run iptables, thank you very much... now I hope I can have conntrackd running, but it still takes time. Not so easy to be a newbee

Actually, I have updated to kernel 2.6.22 a few days ago. Then I realized that there are two issues which everyone might find problems:

1. iptables/netfilter

2. SATA disks


Both because the order of it's options have been changed into the menuconfig, therefore you have to pay attention for that.

So, if anyone is using old config files to compile the new .22, have to pay attention for the iptables/netfilter and the SATA disk configurations.

Hi Sparc86,

Could you please tell me where these options can be found? I'm having problems getting my iptables up and running after a kernel update. I figured out that i'm missing the modules but don't know were to enable them in menuconfig... I must be going blind!

Thanks!

Robbert

Now just set the modules you need for your netfilter box. That's it, I hope now it works to you.


Anyway, please let us know what happened, if it worked or not.

iptables

Hi there,
Finally i found the options with your help! Thanks! There quite easy to miss though!

Unfortunately I am still getting the same errors when attempting to start Arno firewall. Therefor I still don't have internet access on my client PC's. Any suggestions?

I have updated (Slackware) kernel from 2.6.18 to 2.6.20.19. I also updated arno firewall from 1.8.7-rc1 to 1.8.8i

These are the error messages I'm getting when starting the firewall.

iptables v1.3.8: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
Security is ENFORCED for external interface(s) in the FORWARD chain
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
Hopefully you can help me out with this one.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately I am still getting the same errors when attempting to start Arno firewall. Therefor I still don't have internet access on my client PC's. Any suggestions?

I have updated (Slackware) kernel from 2.6.18 to 2.6.20.19. I also updated arno firewall from 1.8.7-rc1 to 1.8.8i

These are the error messages I'm getting when starting the firewall.

Be sure you have loaded all the necessary modules.
Eg:

modprobe ip_tables
modprobe ip_conntrack
modprobe iptable_filter
modprobe ipt_state


If you did it, then try to load this firewall script again, it should works.

If it still doesn't works, then you didn't add the correct modules into the menuconfig.

Hi Sparc86,

Thanks again! That was indeed the problem. Although other threads already pointed into that direction (including this one), somehow my .config file lost my changes a few times. Still trying to figure out why and what happened. I included all the necessary stuff in the kernel (not as module). But after your previous reply when I checked it again, I found that my last changes were gone.

Anyways it's working now and I'm happy! That's all that counts! :-)

Up to my next challenge, RAID-5!

Thanks again!

Robbert
