Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2012-10-18 09:22:01 EDT
An apparent regression from earlier fedoras, rawhide says:

# iptables -t nat -L
iptables v1.4.14: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

% rpm -q kernel-PAE iptables

% man iptables | grep " nat "
[... still shows old documentation ...]
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2012-10-18 11:36:13 EDT
This is a kernel problem: IPv4 NAT is not enabled.

Please also enable IPv6 nat.

Reassigning to kernel.
Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2012-10-18 11:43:55 EDT
This has been fixed in git and will make tomorrow's rawhide build
