Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18209
Unusable when /usr NFS-mounted
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
iptables (started before network) will not find its modules in
/usr/lib/iptables when /usr is NFS mounted.
Actually iptables isn't started anywhere at all because it's supposed to be used with kernel 2.4 only.
Do you mean ipchains?
No, I'm meaning iptables. (I know it isn't used in the current release by
RH-scripts, but it is contained on the CD and does not work if it is called like
ipchains (startposition 08 before network)).
If using a kernel 2.4, e.g. `iptables -j LOG' fails because it needs
/usr/lib/iptables/libipt_LOG.so which is contained on a NFS volume.
With using kernel 2.4 in RH 7.1 this bug becomes important...
Fixed in 1.2.0-1
