    can't start iptables after kernel compile 2.6.17.7


    I wanted to upgrade to debian testing in order to that I had to compile the kernel I compiled kernel 2.6.17.7 with the instructions from http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...ile-error.html
    after compilation I could not start shorewall anymore because the modules were not found and Iptables could not be loaded
    I got this message:
    shorewall start
    Loading /usr/share/shorewall/functions...
    Processing /etc/shorewall/params ...
    Processing /etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf...
    Loading Modules...
    ERROR: Traffic Shaping requires mangle support in your kernel and iptables
    I also had the same problem with the 2.6.16.9 kernel

    I am kind of confused I wanted to ask if someone could please help me so that I can fix this.
    I used the config-2.6.8-2-386 config file

    Thanks in advance....

    i dont see why you need help

    Code:
    ERROR: Traffic Shaping requires mangle support in your kernel and iptables
    go add iptables and mangle to your kernel config then recompile

    thanks for your reaction....
    how do I do that In Debian?
    I have been at this for a while now some modules did not compile even after I loaded the config file config-2.6.8-2-386.
    I also tried google but I have not had any luck yet....

    Please help me out,

    Regards

    i dont mess with debian and never will, i always compile my kernels from the tarball so if your doing it liek i do just run "make menuconfig" int he kernel dir and add iptables.


    iptables is now part of the 2.6.x kernels, it was added some time back but i forget when
