Description of problem:
When check the status of ipchains it says incompatible with kernel.
it worked fine in 7.1
Executing /etc/rc.d/init.d/ipchains status ..
ipchains: Incompatible with this kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start ipchains
Actual Results: It does not work it say incompatible with kernel
Expected Results: It should work
ipchains only works if the ipchains kernel module is loaded. If
you do not have a configured ipchains firewall, with the ipchains
module loaded, then this is the expected behaviour in any 2.4.x
kernel. Note that ipchains and iptables can not coexist.
Also note that this initscript only works with the supplied Red Hat
Linux firewall configuration tools. It does not work with user
supplied or external firewall scripts.
I presume this is not really a bug, but just a misconfiguration.
If you do have the Red Hat ipchains firewall configured, then
please supply the output of the following commands at the time
rpm -q ipchains
