Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-11-20 04:39:06 EST
Description of problem:
When iptables is used without appropriate priviledges, it prints

iptables v1.2.11: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Permission denied
(you must be root)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

The second  line is misleading and should be removed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run iptables -L as normal user
Actual results:
see above

Expected results:
second line missing
