xtables.h missing in iptables-devel
Last modified: 2008-07-10 22:10:51 EDT
I need to compile a module for iptables, since this module requires iptables.h,
i installed iptables-devel.
Now, iptables-devel provides a file named /usr/src/include/iptables.h, but this
file has an include for xtables.h. This file is not found in the iptables-devel
"yum provides \*/xtables.h" gives kernel-devel as an provider for xtables.h, but
the file xtables.h in that package is empty!
# ls -l /usr/src/kernels/2.6.25-1.fc9.i686/include/config/netfilter/xtables.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2008-04-17 07:45
So, eather xtables.h should be included in iptables-devel, or the package
kernel-devel should be updated. I've seen on rpmfind that other iptables-devel
packages do contain xtables.h, so i think it should be located there.
If the file should be located in kernel-devel, i think iptables-devel should
depend on kernel-devel, to fix the requirements for xtables.h.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
