Unloading iptables modules FAILED


Hi,

I'm getting error while stopping Iptables service on my machine

[root@Core ~]# /etc/init.d/iptables stop
Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: mangle filter [ OK ]
Unloading iptables modules: [FAILED]

I found that updating "no" to the line ie
IPTABLES_MODULES_UNLOAD="no" in file /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config file will eliminate warning while stopping the service where it was set to "yes" by default.Can someone help me why it is unable to unload modules.I haven't configured any rules in it

[root@Core ~]# iptables -nL
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
RH-Firewall-1-INPUT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
RH-Firewall-1-INPUT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain RH-Firewall-1-INPUT (2 references)

REJECT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Note : OS version - Centos 5.3 (Final)

Awaiting response.
Thanks!

Linson

What version of Fedora are you running - trawling the www I've found that this is a common kernel bug in older versions of Fedora - and your method of solving it is what most people adopted.
