#6421 closed defect (fixed)

"unresolved symbol rt6_lookup" when loading ip6t_REJECT

Reported by: Sven@… Owned by: developers
Priority: highest Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: kmod-ip6tables Cc:



I freshly installed an ASUS WL500Gp V2 (brcm-2.4) with 8.09.2-RC2.
During setup of IPv6-firewalling I discovered, that the "REJECT"-target for ip6tables is not know by the kernel.
I could dig it down to a missing kernel-symbol (rt6_lookup).

If you put the accompanying patch in target/linux/generic-2.4/patches the unresolved symbol will be gone after recompilation. The patch also removes the debug and tainted kernel message warnings. This unresolved symbol is present until the current backfire brcm-2.4 release.
