Description Roland Wolters 2005-05-18 19:06:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.0 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
When I start netplugd with the system, it sends the message "ip_tables: (C) 
2000-2002 Netfilter core team" to the syslog (it appears in dmesg, for 
example) every 4 seconds. 
- stop and start the netplugd ends this behaviour 
- when I de- and reactivate my Intel WLan card with a switch on the front side 
of my laptop there are no more messages 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start fc3 with netplugd activated and a plugged in WLan-card 
2. change to a ttys or look into your dmesg to see the messages 

Actual Results:  Several messages of the given type appear every 4 seconds. 

Expected Results:  No messages. 

Additional info:

I set this bug severity is just to normal, but it could be high when you 
really need dmesg and it is spammed by these messages
Comment 1 Radek Vokal 2005-05-19 06:52:39 EDT
This message certainly doesn't come from netplugd but from kernel or morelikely
from iptables. I didn't manage to reproduce similar issue here .. 
Comment 2 Roland Wolters 2005-05-19 09:00:48 EDT
I asked other people with fedora if they can reproduce it, but they were not 
Could it depend on the intel wlan driver ipw2200? 
Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2005-06-28 08:28:20 EDT
This can be driver specific issue, I don't have such a card avaliable here. I'm
reassing this bug to kernel. 
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-06-28 22:01:26 EDT
This message is printed during initialisation of the ip_tables module.

something is repeatedly loading/unloading it for some reason.
Looks like a userspace bug to me.
Comment 5 Roland Wolters 2005-06-29 03:09:38 EDT
I#ve set up a Fedora Core 4 system on the laptop, and the messages had gone. 
There are no more of these messages...
