KDE fwbuilder loopback problem solved
I posted yesterday that I had a problem with KDE and iptables on my Woody box.
I tried enabling everything on loopback, but that didn't solve it.
fwbuilder generated an Interface Rule for lo; this didn't work - tail
~messages showed that the TCP traffic from kdeinit was accepted, but
something happened to stall kdeinit....
Anyway the solution proved to edit the /var/lib/iptables/active file, remove
all instances of IPRULE_0_lo and add
-A INPUT -s 127.0.0.1 -i lo -j ACCEPT
-A OUTPUT -d 127.0.0.1 -o lo -j ACCEPT
Now everything works fine.
I'd like to thank all those who helped me hunt this down.
