I am running 2.4.32 kernel w/ pom patches applied (tried the last pom-ng
that has the 2.4 related files, also combined this w/ the newer pom-ng by
replacing the old files w/ the new ones). Independently of the pom-ng
version, if I use iptables-1.3.3 my rules (mainly NAT and some incoming
filters) work, but iptables-1.3.4 and 1.3.5 work only for about 10
minutes, then the firewall begans to drop packages weirdly, nothing shows
up in the logs and the natting breaks within 15 minutes (forward chain
does not forward anymore), the input/output chains work.
I haven't found any related messages, but it seems that the newer iptables
concentrate on 2.6 series, even pom was stripped to add only what is
missing from 2.6.
Should this be interpreted as "2.4 is not supported anymore, stick w/
P.S. Please CC me.
