I am asking this on behalf of the HIPL developers;

They have been working on getting their code consistant to the new libnetfilter architecture. Finally have Fedora 18 and 19 available, but have hit a stumbling block with CentOS 6. They tell me they are not finding libnetfilter_queue. Here is their message to me:

  • Simply put, it’s likely not in RHEL, either. CentOS is, essentially, a clone of RHEL, so if it’s not in RHEL, it’s not in CentOS.

    Keep in mind, as well, that the latest Fedora releases are as closely related to the current RHEL/CentOS release as you and I. RHEL/CentOS6 is closer to Fedora 12, as I recall…someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

  • Quite familiar with CentOS taking what Redhat sends her. (Adapted from a line in ‘The Wreak of the Edmund Fitzgerald’)

    I seem to recall that the switch started with F16 and complete with F17. So this makes it hard for maintainers to work with the old and new.

    grumble.

    The new updater is called fedup. *Boy*, did they choose the correct name. No info during the first part, after the reboot, whether you hit or one of the function keys, then it acts like it hangs, and, in fact, it
    *is* hung, as in power cycle the sucker, then it’s coming up and *now* it installs all its packages….

    And they call 19 Schroedinger’s Cat. I agree, and they don’t want to let you see if it’s alive or dead….

  • 1. Make sure that SE Linux configuration is disabled (changing may require reboot) in /etc/selinux/config:
    SELINUX=disabled
    2. Add a new file /etc/yum.repos.d/hipl.repo
