Fatal: error inserting ip_tables


Just tried to get started with iptables. Did a modprobe ip_tables and got the error message:

FATAL: Error inserting ip_tables (/lib/modules/2.6.17-gentoo-r5/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


Did a dmesg:

And a modinfo ip_tables:

filename: /lib/modules/2.6.17-gentoo-r5/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko
license: GPL
author: Netfilter Core Team <coreteam@netfilter.org>

vermagic: 2.6.17-gentoo-r5 mod_unload gcc-4.1
depends:

and my current modules are:

uhci_hcd 24144 0
parport_pc 42792 0

ohci_hcd 20932 0
i2c_nforce2 8256 0
vfat 14848 0
fat 54832 1 vfa

so it didn't even load.

Can't find much on this anywhere, other than maybe a 32-bit to 64-bit compatibility issue (running on 64-bit Gentoo system)

Thoughts?

Not enough info. Is this a default kernel and are these default packages and are all dependencies satisfied (apparently not ;-p)? BTW, this is not a Linux Security issue but one about running software, so this thread should be moved to the Linux Software or Gentoo forum. No need to apologise, it's OK, you're new here.
