Description Pekka Savola 2001-06-01 03:18:33 EDT
ip6tables and friends look for /usr/lib/iptables/*.so etc., instead of
/lib/iptables.

This can be noticed with 'strace ip6tables -L'.

This is caused by the fact that some part of the code was changed to
IP6T_LIB_DIR, but
makefile was forgotten to be changed.  There is a fix in netfilter CVS for
this.

Also, ip6tables-{save,restore} could be added, even if they aren't of too
much use yet.

There is .src.rpm with these (against 1.2.2-1) at
http://www.netcore.fi/pekkas/linux/ipv6/
Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2001-06-26 16:28:02 EDT
Reminder.  The fix is from CVS, and should be quite non-controversial.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-10 11:17:40 EDT
Fixed in 1.2.2-3
