#3755 closed defect (wontfix)

kmod-ebtables not built with kernel 2.6.25+

Reported by: basmevissen Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Kamikaze 8.09 RC1
Component: kernel Version:
Keywords: ebtables kernel linux Cc: abuse@…


The kmod-ebtables package isn't built with kernel 2.6.25+ because the ebtables kmods aren't built. Cause is a new Linux kernel dependancy since 2.6.25 requiring CONFIG_BRIDGE_NETFILTER=y defined for the ebtables kernel modules to be built.

Attached patch corrects this. Please apply.
Tested against trunk r11629.

Enabling bridge filtering slows down the bridging between interfaces, which is the reason why we have disabled it. We are currently working on a solution to avoid setting CONFIG_NETFILTER_BRIDGE.

Is interface bridging also significantly slowed down when the ebtables kernel modules are not loaded into the kernel?

Don't do that ! or at least, give an alternative, because IPv6 brouting is used for some configurations, actually i'm thinking of the "free" ( french isp that provides /64 ipv6 addresses, which cannot be used through a router/gateway without brouting.
