New point version.
Btw, in opposite to what we have in book, there seems to be something like a test suite:
$ sudo ./iptables-test.py
Unfortunatly, when running it just as it is, i got lots of errors and the result is
107 test files, 803 unit tests, 407 passed
The script does not run too long, 0.1 SBU i think.
Any ideas on how to invoke that test script to report a better result than 50% failures? (I've mailed to Shekhar but do not expect a reply quickly)
Got response from Shekhar:
First of all thanks for reaching out and sorry for my delayed response
as i was a little busy with my semester exams.
When checked the iptables-test.py file after your mail, i also had the
But might i suggest the following:
These errors might be generated because you must be using/testing nftables also
on the same machine. The results may significantly improve if you do:
sudo python3 iptables-test.py
This worked on my machine, except 3-4 (99.5% success) tests failing.
Will let you know more
about it once i figure out how to get full 100% tests passed.
Kindly feel free to contact me any time if i can contribute in any way to the
Linux from Scratch project.
So i have to recheck if --disable-nftables was really set, but i'm pretty sure as i used the commands from the book.
If ok, i'd go to upgrade iptables to 1.8.4 anyway, leaving the test suite out for now and do some investigations independently.
Fixed in r22451
