Description Henri Schlereth 2000-06-26 00:31:13 EDT
I presume iptables is to replace ipchains. Ipchains is removed from
the rpm database, the files are left intact and the startup file is
renamed in /etc/rc.d/init.d
without exporting or converting any existing tables. This effectively
wipes out any forwarding/masquerading that is in existence.
Couldnt there be some sort of check to see if the table file exists
in /etc/sysconfig and to import it. Or am I missing something.
Additionally, the bugzilla beta2 components lists ipchains but that
compenent is not on the CD-1 or CD-2.
Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2000-06-26 10:34:24 EDT
This has harassed me too.  I'd suggest putting ipchains back (or removing
Obsoletes: from iptables package) for as long as 2.2 kernel is being used.  It's
not that iptables is of any real use yet, anyway ...
