grsecurity and iptables 1.2.6a

Postby jjcool » Mon Mar 25, 2002 11:43 am

after compiling iptables 1.2.6a, i get strange message after i do a "modprobe ip_nat_ftp" (or other ip_nat_??? stuf) it says:

modprobe: Too deep recursion in module dependencies!
modprobe: Circular dependency? ip_nat_proto_udp ip_conntrack ip_nat_core ip_nat_helper ip_nat_ftp
grsec: signal 6 sent to (modprobe:251) UID(0) EUID(0), parent (bash:11006) UID(0) EUID(0)
Aborted

and /var/log/messages says:
Mar 25 16:50:46 localhost kernel: grsec: signal 6 sent to (modprobe:251) UID(0) EUID(0), parent (bash:11006) UID(0) EUID(0)

please help

are you sure it's related to grsecurity and not just a compiling problem? I've got iptables 1.2.6a working fine here with module support. Is anyone else having this problem?

That looks like grsec just reporting on your module being sent signal 6....and not grsecurity-related. We wouldn't do
anything that would affect dependencies(at least to my
knowledge:).
