package dependencies kmod-ipt-* and iptables-mod-* | a solution

Reported by: markus_kubler@… Owned by: developers
Priority: highest Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: iptables mark tos length Cc:


The forum sais: Install the iptables-mod-ipopt package which automatically installs kmod-ipt-iptopt as a dependency.

The other way round, there is no dependency. This may be a good thing, but there should be a hint, to install iptables-mod-*, too.

There are some tickets here, I created one and there are more, I think their only problem is, that the user installs kmod-ipt-* but forgets to install iptables-mod-* additionally.

I don't know if a dependency the other way around is needed, but a hint would be fine.

google could give some help, but only by searching with the right search words.

I'll put this right away into the wiki. This has been bothering me for a couple of weeks now! Tickets are still open, support-questions in the forum have remained unanswered. I just stumbled upon the solution.

You should always install iptables-mod-* if you need iptables stuff, not the kmod.
