ebtables failure

Reported by: Jan Sebosik Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: ebtables Cc:


Hi all

I`m using openwrt-trunk r33395 for my TP-LINK 1043ND (downloaded & compiled from svn).
Ebtables invocation fails according to this.

root@gw:~# ebtables -t broute -F
root@gw:~# ebtables -F
root@gw:~# ebtables -t broute -A BROUTING -p 0x800 --ip-proto igmp -j ACCEPT
Unable to update the kernel. Two possible causes:
1. Multiple ebtables programs were executing simultaneously. The ebtables
   userspace tool doesn't by default support multiple ebtables programs running
   concurrently. The ebtables option --concurrent or a tool like flock can be
   used to support concurrent scripts that update the ebtables kernel tables.
2. The kernel doesn't support a certain ebtables extension, consider
   recompiling your kernel or insmod the extension.

Can anybody help/point me where could be the problem?

It`s not support forum here - I already know.
But this is real ticket/issue in openwrt/ebtables package <-> linux kernel.

Issue seems to be inside file build_dir/target-mips_r2_uClibc- in function ebt_deliver_table(...), but I dont know exactly whats going on inside yet/why it happens.

You didn't include required ebtables submodules:

# CONFIG_PACKAGE_kmod-ebtables-ipv4 is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_kmod-ebtables-ipv6 is not set

thanks for pinpointing possible problem location, I`ll try & report

After recompilation /w kmod-ebtables-ipv4 now seems everything fine. Thanks for help.
Maybe this kernel module should be dependency of ebtables package.
