Bug Description


I would like to use iptables on my pandaboard with the latest Linaro developer image.
But I'm getting the following error:

# iptables -L
FATAL: Module ip_tables not found.
iptables v1.4.10: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Patch sent to John so it can be added at the packaging tree. A new kernel should be around in 1 or 2 days with the fix.
