kernel update and "iptables: No chain/target/match by that name"
 
I recently tried updating my kernel from 2.6.19.2 to 2.6.20.4

In the process, iptables seems to broke enough that I can't get access to the web.


I use guarddog to configure my firewall. When I try to apply the firewall, the messages are

Quote:

Using iptables.
Resetting firewall rules.
Loading kernel modules.
FATAL: Module ip_conntrack_irc not found.
FATAL: Module ip_conntrack_ftp not found.
Setting kernel parameters.
Configuring firewall rules.
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
above line repeated many times...
Finished.
Code:

lsmod | grep ip
yields
Quote:

ipx
p8022
psnap
p9023
ipt_LOG
ipt_REJECT
iptable_filter
ip_tables
I have enabled every option as module in Networking --> Networking options --> Network packet filtering framework (Netfilter) --> Core Netfilter Configuration and IP: Netfilter Configuration except Netfilter connection tracking support.

Thanks.

After some googling, it appears that modules with names such as
Quote:

ip_conntrack_irc
have changed names to
Quote:

nf_conntrack_irc

Is this the source of my problems? I am going to post to the guarddog mailing list, but are there any suggestions about how I can get up and running until then?

Why don't you try to change it and see? ;)

You may have to fix the references to ip_conntrack_* in your iptables configuration files (which will probably be distro-specific).

guarddog works to configure your firewall thats it...

but the issue now goes when your tried the kernel upgrade,

if your familiar with make menuconfig then proceed with:
1.Networking --->
2.Networking Options --->
3.Put [Y] on Network packet filtering framework (Netfilter) --->
4.Core Netfilter Configuration --->


its only a walkthrough hope it will help you solve your problem

Before recompiling the kernel, try it:

depmod -a (it will going to probe all modules)

modprove "module" (where "" is the name of it's module. It will going to probe for an specific module).


If it doesn't works, then try recompiling your kernel as it's described above :)
