Description Bill Nottingham 2012-08-29 14:00:24 EDT
Description of problem:

The iproute spec has:

Requires: iptables >= 1.4.5

1) That's really really old
2) By hardcoding it to the iptables package, it still drags in the iptables commandline tools even if we decide to subpackage the libraries

I think we can drop this line and just have the xtables library requirement pick up iptables (or a theoretical iptables-libs) where necessary.

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