I need some installation help with Shorewall...


Hello! While trying to install Shorewall I go the "no iptables" error, but I can't figure out how to turn of the dependencies. Here's what it says on the website to do:

error: failed dependencies:iproute is needed by shorewall-1.4.x-1

This may be worked around by using the --nodeps option of rpm (rpm -ivh --nodeps <shorewall rpm>)

Ok, so what do I put in the brackets where it says <shorewall rpm> if my RPM is located in /home/*my user name*/Setup Files ??? Thanks in advance!

not too sure about the RPMs but you'll need to install the correct package which contains the iproute app.

Where it says <shorewall rpm>.rpm, replace the brackets and their contents with the full name of whatever your rpm file is.

A quick way is to type in (for example) shorewall and then hit the tab key. As long as there is only one file of it's type/name it will autocomplete the full name.

GRR!!! It still won't work. I typed in the name of the file and it said no such file existed... is there somewhere else I should have this stored or what? Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks.

This may be a silly question, but you did issue the "su" command first, didn't you?

By which I mean that you typed su and hit enter, then the root p/w and hit enter and then you typed rpm -ivh <package name>.rpm.

What is the full name of the rpm file? And did you download and install the iproute first?

Hello! Yep, I switched over to root before trying to install. I have no installed IPROUTE because I thought it was all ready installed because Mandrake uses Shorewall in it's Mandrake Control thingy, but I will try to install IPROUTE (or check to see) and go from there. Maybe it's not installed??? I'm not sure. Anyways, thanks again for your help and when I find out, I'll post back. Later!
