Your /lib/ld-linux.so doesn't know where the libs are. You will
need to do one of the following:
o add /usr/local/lib/iptables to /etc/ld.so.conf; or
o add "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/iptables" to the top of
the script; or
o move the libs to /lib or /usr/lib (or somewhere else searched
by ld.so); or
o relink iptables, using the -rpath flag to tell it where the
After doing one of the above, you can add this to your script to
see what libraries it can and can't find and where it finds
them (if it does):
(e.g. ldd /sbin/iptables)
If the above doesn't work, make sure the partition containing
/usr/local/lib/iptables is mounted when your script runs :)
I hope this helps.
