From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
ipchains use generates "incompatible with this kernel", but /sbin/ifup uses the
ipchains command to query firewall status.  I suspect that this is a phase error
in releasing. kernel 2.4.18-4;initscripts-6.67-1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.examine the /sbin/ifup script.

kernel-2.4.18-10 package also has this problem.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-09-09 15:38:42 EDT
You may need to load the ipchains module first. Have you already loaded iptables?
Comment 3 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2002-09-09 22:11:44 EDT
My bad.  Hadn't loaded the ipchains.o module.  Thanks for the tip
