Description Roland Wolters 2007-04-22 23:31:56 UTC
Description of problem:
If I want to start the service "iptables" it fails with the following error 
in /var/log/messages:
system/iptables: bash_helper[system/iptables]: /etc/sysconfig/iptables: No 
such file or directory

I think the right file is:

Comment 1 Daniel Malmgren 2007-05-07 08:46:43 UTC
There has been work done upstreams regarding both the iptables script and
scripts in general. I'm quite sure though that there should be a
/etc/sysconfig/iptables file, without this the SysVinit scripts will fail as
well. If this problem persists with next release please reopen this bug.
