Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13039
Ipchains is disabled/removed sort of.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 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.
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 ...
