I noticed this morning the iptables firewall was not starting due to the fact that I rebuilt the kernel and forgot to include the relevent Netfilter modules. So I added those and rebooted. The firewall still fails, but rather that referring to the non-available ip_tables module, it now just says iptables.init: iptables: Applying firewall rules: iptables-restore: line 13 failed.
On Fedora 12 each reboot seem to reset my custom iptables rules I have manually added to /etc/sysconfig/iptables. My change are in /etc/sysconfig/iptables.old so obviously some process is removing them.
Any idea what this is? Any suggestions appreciated.
