http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have inherited a custom built Linux kernel 2.6.30.9 and am just upgrading the underlying OS from RHEL 5.4 to 5.8 (kernels 2.6.18.164 and 2.6.18.308 respectively). When booting, the following is displayed: unloading iptables modules [ OK ] Applying iptables firewall rules: modprobe: FATAL: module ip-tables not found. iptables-restore v1.3.5: iptables-restore unable to initialize 'filter' Error occurred at line 3 try 'iptables-restore -h' or 'iptables-restore --help' for more information . [FAILED] the /etc/iptables file lo (HowTos)
