Running Firestarter: Missing config file !


I'm so fedup with Shorewall that I wanted to install Firestarter. I know Firestarter is great ( I used it without any problem when I was running Fedora Core2 )
So, Iinstalled Firestarter via urpmi. No error during the package installation.
Now, When I click on the Firestarter icon to start it, I have a small window that open saying: "missing configuration file ".
When I start Firestarter from the console mode, it just says "netfilter running ".
tia for any helpful suggestion.

I had this exact same problem. I think there's something wrong with rpm for Mandrake. The way I solved it was to uninstall the Mandrake rpm, d/l the program from the Firestarter web-site and install it that way. All was solved after that.

I agree with your assesment of Shorewall & Squid. The Mandrake Control Center sets that up way to seriously for my needs.

Did you download and install the RPM for Fedora core 2 & 3 , or the source ( .tar.gz ) file ?
At least I'm glad to know that it solved your problem.

I had installation problems ( missing libs or RPM ) with both source and RPM Firestarter downloaded directly from the Firestarter website.
But I was able to tweak my Shorewall config files and it works fine now, I can ping my router from the clients. So, Shorewall seems to be a good application, I'd rather bleme Mandrake with their config files set to a very restrictive level.
Thanks for the help anyway Jeremy.
