    I have problem with my firewall. Everything was ok till yestarday. I restarted my server and when I try to load firewall rules it shwos like that :

    iptables v1.2.11: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
    Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

    on command

    modprobe ip_tables :

    modprobe: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: Operation not permitted

    output on comand :

    grep -i iptables /boot/config-`uname -r`


    Can sombody help me what to do ?

    I think you libc package is broken which is causing modprobe not to work, which flavor of linux are you running ?

    What is the output of
    ldd $(which modprobe)
