l7-filter

Hi!

On of goals for breezy is to develop easy to use firewall manager. As we
all know, there is no easy way to filter P2P protocols. We can block
ports, but P2P programs tend to change ports and, in the end, you can't
do anything about them.

So, there is a patch that could help us create easy to use firewall. It
is patch for netfilter and iptables userland tool. It enables us to
create rule like "block everywthing, but allow P2P and ICQ/Jabber
connections to me".

Filtering is done on application layer, so it doesn't care about ports
or applications that are in use. It checks protocol!

If we have kernel/iptables that implement this, writing python program
that will do things like this wouldn't be hard. User would have option
to enable one-by-one (or all) P2P networks.

I did some testing and I run this deployment on couple of places. One
firewall is transparent proxy/filter for over 300 computers. And it
isn't some fancy hardware.

Fabio said patching of kernel is possible if userland tools would be
developed. That's why I'm crossposting this, cause I know there are few
people interested in creating easy to use firewall on ubuntu-devel.

Recompile of kernel

Hi,
I tried to recompile the kernel 2.6.11-1-686 (2.6.11-0.2) with 
iNotify-v0.22 which crash on my laptop with KDE.
I was able to do it but have a problem of name. The kernel package is:
   2.6.11-1-686 (2.6.11-0.3.jec1)
but I would like it to be:
   2.6.11-2-686 (2.6.11-0.3.jec1)
So I can install it alongside of the default one, not remplace it.

How to do it?
Thanks

ipw2200 issues in 2.6.10

Hi!

I noticed some anoying issues in 2.6.10 kernel in Hoary. Randomly, my
wifi just looses connection to any SSID. After rmmod && modprobe, it
works fully again.

I didn't notice same behaviour with 2.6.12.

There is already a bug reported in bugzilla, and generally bugs should
be reported there, not on this mailing list.

Don't use 2.6.11. It's not supported and utterly broken. If you want
inotfy use 2.6.12 from breezy/universe.

the problem is the driver ships with firmware, but its not like someone 
stole the image from some windows drivers, the company puts out there 
own firmware files.  let me quickly recap what i went through.  i read this:

raising this point, which address your thought about whether you ought 
to package the driver or not:

Realtime module and 2.6.12-1-686

Hi,
I tried to compile the realtime LSM module for 2.6.12 and got this error 
while insmod'ing it
  Realtime: is kernel configured with CONFIG_SECURITY_CAPABILITIES=m?

It seems that linux-image-2.6.12-1-686 is not configured with 
CONFIG_SECURITY_CAPABILITIES=m
Is it wanted?
Is it possible to change that?
Thanks.

Yes it is configured as module and loaded on each boot.

The other way around
