    iptables fatal error

    Hi,
    When I try to use iptables, for example:
    Code:
    iptables -L
    I get the following error...
    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting ip_tables (/lib/modules/2.6.31.6/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    iptables v1.4.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
    Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
    I am using Ubuntu 9.10 server edition and iptables 1.4.4.

    This is what dmesg says:
    Code:
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol seq_open_net
    x_tables: Unknown symbol seq_open_net
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol register_pernet_subsys
    x_tables: Unknown symbol register_pernet_subsys
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol init_net
    x_tables: Unknown symbol init_net
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol seq_release_net
    x_tables: Unknown symbol seq_release_net
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol proc_net_remove
    x_tables: Unknown symbol proc_net_remove
    x_tables: disagrees about version of symbol unregister_pernet_subsys
    x_tables: Unknown symbol unregister_pernet_subsys
    I tried removing iptables and installing it again, but that doesn't change anything...

    Thanks,
    Sebastiaan
