Thumbs up Iptables installation problem


Hello,

I am using Red Hat Linux and Im trying to upgrade my firewall to Iptables 1.2.8. I downloaded the .tar file and prepared to install it but I got the following error:

[root@luckycassius iptables-1.2.8]# ls
COPYING ip6tables.8 ip6tables-save.8 iptables.8 iptables-restore.c iptables-standalone.d Makefile
extensions ip6tables.c ip6tables-save.c iptables.c iptables-save.8 KNOWN_BUGS Rules.make
include ip6tables-restore.8 ip6tables-standalone.c iptables.d iptables-save.c libipq
INSTALL ip6tables-restore.c ippool iptables-restore.8 iptables-standalone.c libiptc

[root@luckycassius iptables-1.2.8]# make

Could anyone help me decipher what this error means. Thanks!

It sounds like your kernel version isn't supported. Hav eyou checked your version against any requirements?
