problem with iptables afer compiling 18.104.22.168 from www.kernel.org on centos 5.1
Hello there, this is my first post.
I have been using RedHat 9.0 since it first came out.
When fedora core 1.0 first came out, I had problem when recompiling iptables. Iptables didnt work after the recompile.
For this reason I never move beyond redhat 9.0.
I thought I give it a try to move to CENTOS 5.1.
After recompiling the 22.214.171.124 kernel on CENTOS 5.1 and iptables 1.4.0, iptables failed to work.
On close examination of /usr/src/linux-126.96.36.199/.config, many CONFIG_IP_NF* parameters were missing. I couldn't figure a way to insert the CONFIG_IP_NF* parameters via make menuconfig.
I edited a copy of .config in the /root directory and then copied it to /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52 directory. Somehow after the "make menuconfig" it is overwritten.
It somehow was easier done on redhat 9.00 with 2.4.36 kernel.
Anybody have any idea how I can fix this probem.
