    I try to setup a conntrackd but I am stucked:

    [Wed Aug 22 16:47:49 2007] (pid=13629) --- starting in console mode ---
    [Wed Aug 22 16:47:50 2007] (pid=13629) [FAIL] can't open netlink handler! no ctnetlink kernel support?

    I serched for ctnetlink but I found either modules that didn't fit or .c files, and I also looked in the menuconfig but I didn't find it... I don't know what it is and I don't know how to get it? Has anybody an idea?

    If you don't find it in menuconfig, then I guess that you have to patch the kernel first... What's your kernel version?

    I have googled a bit, and I think that ctnetlink support is now included in the kernel. Are you sure there was no such option during make menuconfig?

    What's the output of
    grep -i ctnetlink /boot/config-`uname -r`
