Re: iptables on amd64 kernel

Hi Jakub,

I've the same on a server machine since weeks.

I could solve the problem by installing the 'amd64-libs' and a manually install of 'iptables_1.2.11-10_amd64.deb' with '--force-architecture'.

Well it works without any further problems (by me). The annoying thing is that apt/aptitude always tries to update the iptables package.

Maybe someone else knows a better solution.

iptables v1.3.1: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Bad file
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Kernel and iptables upgrade did not help. Can I ask you for help? What should I do to have iptables running with amd64 kernel?

I have installed also iptables_1.3.1-2_amd64.deb (with --force-all), but
result is the same.

I use Debian testing.

Thank you in advance!
