           Summary: Execution and compilation problems
           Product: iptables
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: arm
        OS/Version: Debian GNU/Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P1
         Component: iptables
        AssignedTo: laforge at netfilter.org
        ReportedBy: paul.bussmann at technidata.com

I use version 1.4.6, but it can't be selected in "Version" in this bug report

I was unable to get iptables running on an ARM/Linux machine.
I'm using Debian-based (Ubuntu) for cross-compilation and Debian/GNU-Linux
(ARM) for execution.

When I configure without "--enable-static" everything compiles fine and I
transfer the executable on the target device but it complains about missing
compiler when I start it on the target (!) machine. 

root at myhost /tmp
$ ln -s iptables-multi iptables

root at myhost /tmp
$ ./iptables --help
./iptables: line 1: cd: /home/dlmdevelop/arm-src/iptables-1.4.6: No such file
or directory
./iptables: line 1: arm-linux-gcc: command not found

Do I need a compiler on the target (!) device for iptables? I checked the
iptables FAQ but I didn't find anything about that.

I gave it another try with static linking "--enable-static" but this does not
even compile. The error message is:
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64        -D_REENTRANT -Wall -Waggregate-return
-Wmissing-declarations    -Wmissing-prototypes -Wredundant-decls -Wshadow
-Wstrict-prototypes     -Winline -pipe 
-DXTABLES_INTERNAL -I./include -I./include -I

.deps/iptables_multi-xshared.Tpo -c -o iptables_multi-xshared.o `test -f
'xshared.c' || echo './'`xshared.c
mv -f .deps/iptables_multi-xshared.Tpo .deps/iptables_multi-xshared.Po
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `extensions/libext4.a', needed by
`iptables-multi'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/dlmdevelop/arm-src/iptables-1.4.6'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

So I tried to build extensions/libext4.a first without the option
"--enable-static", but it can't be compiled anyway:

dlmdevelop at dlmdevelop ~/arm-src/iptables-1.4.6
$ ./configure --disable-ipv6
--with-kernel=/var/public/kernel/linux-2.6.11-mm2-karo --host=arm-linux
--prefix=/home/dlmdevelop/arm-target && make extensions/libext4.a

config.status: executing libtool commands
make: *** No rule to make target `extensions/libext4.a'.  Stop.

Any help is appreciated!
