Description Avi Alkalay 2001-03-04 15:19:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.26 i686)

Using kernel-2.4.0-0.26 (from preview packages in RH7.0 CD), the
ipt_MASQUERADE module incorrectly needs ipchains module to be loaded. As a
result, when trying "modprobe ipt_MASQUERADE", the system tryies to insmod
ipchains, but fails because iptables is already loaded.

I found the dependency in modules.dep file.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lsmod will not show neither iptalbes or ipchains modules loaded.
2. If trying to 'modprobe ipt_MASQUERADE' I got unresolved symbol
3. If I 'modprobe iptable_nat' first, this symbol will be available.
4. Then I 'modprobe ipt_MASQUERADE' and got "failed to insmod ipchains",
because iptables is already loaded.
5. A workaround it to simply "insmod ipt_MASQUERADE" after "modprobe

This should be fixed in rawhide.
