Description Eduard Kohler 2012-07-30 11:42:08 EDT
Description of problem:

Shorewall fails when applying traffic control rules with the following error:
RTNETLINK answers: No such file or directory
This is due to some missing kernel modules that have been moved to kernel-modules-extra package. After Shorewall failure, the system network connectivity is correctly (in my opinion) blocked. Of course, for a network only device is not acceptable.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Yum upgrade a working F16 device with a boot generated firewall by Shorewall to F17
2. Reboot
3. Enjoy remote brick

Actual results:
No network connectivity.

Expected results:
Working device.

Additional info:

Modules used by Shorewall that have moved to kernel-modules-extra:
# find /usr/share/shorewall/* -type f -exec grep 'loadmodule ' \{} \; | awk '{print $2}' | sort -u > shorewall.txt
# rpm -ql kernel-modules-extra | egrep -e '\.ko' | xargs -l basename | awk -F"." '{print $1}' >> shorewall.txt
# sort shorewall.txt | uniq -d

Result :

These should be back in the main kernel package in tomorrow's rawhide and in the  next F17 kernel build.

If the next kernel package for f17 is:


then these modules still available only into the kernel-modules-extra package.

Nope.  I said the next kernel build.  It hasn't been built yet.  Bodhi will leave a comment here when it's available.
Comment 4 Josh Boyer 2012-10-08 11:16:08 EDT
This was fixed in 3.5.0-4 (and newer).
