Error on boot from ip6tables after install
Last modified: 2008-02-19 09:28:33 EST
Description of problem:
I get a failure to load and an error from ip6tables during bootup without any
changes to it from the installed configuration
Every time I boot, of course I only installed once. I am doing a network install.
Here is a rerun for the load script so you can see the error. Interestingly
enough the boot.log is blank.
[root@goldenchild log]# /etc/init.d/ip6tables restart
ip6tables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
ip6tables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
ip6tables: Unloading modules: [ OK ]
ip6tables: Applying firewall rules: ip6tables-restore v1.3.8: Unknown arg
Error occurred at line: 8
Try `ip6tables-restore -h' or 'ip6tables-restore --help' for more information.
Here is the ip6 tables

Here is the ip6tables config
If it helps any I am not actually using ip6, and would normally not have worried
about this, but we are testing this stuff right now. I have several interfaces
in this machine all ethernet. Only eth0 is in use for ip4 and is dchp configed.
