#10217 closed defect (fixed)

Remove package dependencies to deprecated package iptables-utils

Reported by: hnyman Owned by: jow
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: dependency Cc: hannu.nyman@…


r27961 and r27962 removed the package iptables-utils, and the functionality is now built into the main iptables package both in trunk and Backfire.

However, there are still packages with dependency references to iptables-utils. And that can cause trouble like in #9989

There are at least 3 packages with dependencies:




shorewall-lite and multiwan contain also dependency to iptables, so the unnecessary depencedency on iptables-utils could be simply removed.

firewall-mod-save should be modifed to be dependent on iptables instead of iptables-utils.

The same cure can be applied both for trunk and Backfire.
