Description John Dixon 2002-10-23 00:30:18 UTC
When useing Netfilter in 2.4.19-r10 (CONFIG_NETFILTER=y), it is not possible to
get the modules for netfilter loaded using modprobe/insmod. All CONFIG_IP_NF_*
entries are selected to be built as modules.

All builds OK, but after installing the kernel it is not possible to get the
modules to load usind modprobe/insmod. They complain of a series of missing
functions, most noticably nf_unregister_hook.

Reverting back to -r9 resolves the issue.

.config file

build using .config file moved from old version. make oldconfig, answer the
questions about new bits (being conservative.)

make dep && make bzImage modules modules_install. Do the juggery-pokery with
the bzImage file and GRUB. Reboot, and then attempt to load the ip_conntrack
module using modprobe. issues as described above.

just stick with -r9, -r10 has a couple issues, and will never be in gentoo-stable.

Double check this with lolo-sources latest, but I don't forsee any troubles.
