Question 2.6.8 no iptables


Have been mucking around with kernel 2.6.8 and alsa and noted when kernel boots, that I get an error saying no iptables. Went back through the config and there is netfiltering or whatever. Does this replace iptables (says it does) if so, how do you configure it?

If the package is not installed, go to http://netfilter.org/downloads.html and get it. Debain should be able to apt-get it also
check /usr/sbin or iptables just in case your user doesn't have the right permissions.

iptables is installed, I just rebooted into that kernel and looked with synaptic. Even re-installed it. But if I modprobe iptables I get no module error. I dont remember ever actually compiling anything for iptables ever, and this is the first kernel that has done this. Dunno what I have done to make it happen. Last night I even upgraded the kernel source because of this as I thought it might have been a bug.

solved. Just had to go into the netfilter section and basically make every single module in there. Funnily though, if you read the description for most of those modules, it says that most users shouldnt need them, if unsure select no.
