Description of problem:
i upgraded my kernel ( RH7.2) from the default kernel version to 2.4.17 SMP. 
then when i run iptables it gave me:
modprobe: Can't locate module ip_tables
iptables v1.2.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do 
you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) i upgraded my kernel ( RH7.2) from the default kernel version to 2.4.17 SMP. 
then when i run iptables it gave me:
2) iptables -L


Actual Results:  modprobe: Can't locate module ip_tables
iptables v1.2.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do 
you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Expected Results:  Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

iptables isnt compiled as module in the kernel configuration and there's no 
option to make it as a module.

Comment 2 Ben Levenson 2002-02-22 16:41:31 UTC
changing component to kernel
the latest supported kernel for 7.2 is 2.4.9-21. 
if the kernel is from Rawhide 
(ftp://pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/), then perhaps the product 
should be switched to Red Hat Linux Rawhide.
changing to NEEDINFO -- please toggle product to RAWHIDE if this is where
you got the kernel, otherwise close as NOTABUG. thanks.

Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2002-02-23 03:00:04 UTC
reopening so I can close as NOTABUG
