Firestarter problems (Newbie)


I having problems installing Firestarter. I have used apt-get to build dependencies and getting firestarter. When i as root try to start firestarter it complains about not knowing which kernel and a heap of other fault. What am I doing wrong?

I have Debian 3.0, kernel 2.2.20

I removed Ipchains, because I have read that Ipchains and Iptables can conflict...

can you even have IPtables with a 2.2 kernel?

I always thought that IPtables was a 2.4 thing and that if you had 2.2 you use IPChains...

That could be your problem right there..

When i try to install firestarter without iptables it complains, it's a dependencie, and firestarter 0.8.3 is for kernel 2.2 isn't it?

Do I have to compile a new Kernel?

Hmmm..well I don't see anything on the site as to which version is for which.

I think from the description that its supposed to work with either ipchains or netfilter, whichever you have installed.

Does or did ipchains work before you installed it? (ie: was it installed...there are some kernel options that have to be compiled for it to work but I don't know if Debian has them on by default...although they probably do)

I have Firestarter running fine on my system. I just downloaded the rpm, installed it by double clicking on it or if using a terminal, log on as root and type
rpm -ivh firestarter.x.x.x.x.rpm. Works fine. I think you will find that IP Tables or IP Chains, not sure which, is required because that is Firestarter! Basically all Firestarter is, is a front end to IP Tables or IP Chains and is what is commonly known as a gui. Hope this helps.

Does rpm work on Debian?

I get the gui but script output in terminal says gtk warning and gtk critical, it also says it doesn't know what kernel it is and assumes IPtables.

The firestarter is runnung (shows up in processes) but nothing shows in gui. When i start and stop the gui I get the same warnings in script output. It also says something about gtkcontainer. (I am on a different computer now, but i will post script output next time.

Thanks for helping!
