Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:0318 normal SHIPPED_LIVE glibc-kernheaders bug fix update 2007-04-30 14:44:01 UTC

Description Ralf Spenneberg 2005-03-30 12:19:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040922 Galeon/1.3.19

Description of problem:
The kernel-2.6.9-5.EL supports the netfilter addrtype feature
while the iptables command does not. 
Calling 
iptables -m addrtype -h 
results in an error not finding the appropiate library.




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
iptables-1.2.11-3.1.RHEL4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. iptables -m addrtype -h
2.
3.
  

Actual Results:  iptables v1.2.11: Couldn't load match addrtype:/lib/iptables/libipt_addrtype.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  Since it is enabled in the kernel I would iptables expect to know it too.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-11-18 12:09:57 UTC
This has to get fixed in glibc-kernheaders - there is no ipt_addrtype.h.

Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-09-12 15:34:16 UTC
This is fixed in glibc-kernheaders-2_4-9_1_99_EL

We'll need to get that into the buildroot and build a new iptables.

QE ack for 4.5.
