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):
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.
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
This message certainly doesn't come from netplugd but from kernel or morelikely
from iptables. I didn't manage to reproduce similar issue here ..
I asked other people with fedora if they can reproduce it, but they were not
Could it depend on the intel wlan driver ipw2200?
This can be driver specific issue, I don't have such a card avaliable here. I'm
reassing this bug to kernel.
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.
I#ve set up a Fedora Core 4 system on the laptop, and the messages had gone.
There are no more of these messages...
