Description Indrajit Raychaudhuri 2002-12-24 05:04:43 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130

Description of problem:
Older version (1.2.6a-3) of iptables has been included.
The most recent version of iptables is 1.2.7a.

From the changelog of the included rpm it doesn't appear that the 1.2.7a changes
have been incorporated.

We would love to have the newer version included.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run rpm -qa | grep iptables

Actual Results:  iptables-1.2.6a-3

Expected Results:  iptables-1.2.7a-xx

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2002-12-24 12:33:20 EST
I second this and at the same time like to point out that 1.2.6a contains
several bugs and problems. Most (or all) of them have been fixed in older bug
reports for either Psyche and Valhalla as well as upstream. But no one from Red
Hat seems to take notice:


While Red Hat Linux 7.x uses ipchains, 8.x uses iptables and hence should ship
with a well-maintained iptables package.

Forgot including the fixed initscripts upon transferring the patches from my
Valhalla package.

bugfixes integrated into 1.2.7a-1. Enhancements left out for now.
