Description Kaj J. Niemi 2003-09-26 23:55:47 UTC
Description of problem:

iptables setup with port translation from common port to high port fails to stop
or restart (which is really the same thing as "stop", "start"), instead
"/sbin/service iptables stop" hangs forever as does any strace attempt on the
modprobe part. Modprobe utilizes 99% of CPU, driving load from 0.00 to 1.00.

Services active on the high port include things such as tomcat.

I'm able to reproduce this with all kernels I've tried this on including:


% ps ax
23069 pts/3    S      0:00 /bin/sh /sbin/service iptables stop
23072 pts/3    S      0:00 /bin/sh /etc/init.d/iptables stop
23111 pts/3    R      0:38 modprobe -r ipt_REDIRECT
23204 pts/3    R      0:00 ps ax

% /sbin/service iptables status
Firewall is stopped.

Attached is a sample /etc/sysconfig/iptables which I'm able to get to hang.

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

How reproducible:

Additional info:

Workaround is to reboot when modifying iptables rulesets but that really blows.

Test case /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Oh yeah, haven't touched /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config, it's at its defaults.

This is a kernel issue.

Looks like a duplicate of bug #103177 which is about Valhalla, but contains a
pointer to a fix.

Comment 4 Kaj J. Niemi 2003-10-16 14:18:48 UTC
Resolving as duplicate as earlier bug #103177 exists with the same symptoms.
