I am running iptables-1.2.11-r3 on my Gentoo installed Cobalt Qube2 and
it compiles alright.
If I remember correctly I have tried a higher version which failed on
My kernel is linux-2.6.10-20050115 which is in the Portage tree of
Gentoo and is based upon CVS.
So far this machines runs for 14 days without a problem.
It runs iptables with shorewall.

I've been trying to figure out why the current iptables fails on the
2.6.9 and 2.6.11 MIPS builds. It seems that a file
cpu-features-overrides.h is missing for the Cobalt builds. Are their
plans for one, or is there a patch out there so we can get it added.
Here is the error message on the IPTables build, I still don't
understand why they are checking for that myself.

Something wrong... deleting dependencies.

This is a headers problem, mainly in 2.6. 2.6 isn't safe out-of-the-box for
userland consumption. I've been toying with some 2.6.10 headers from LMO cvs
on the gentoo side of things, where we have an "appCompat" patch that plugs up
a alot of the leaky holes in 2.6.x headers, but I still have to analyze the
patch and add in some mips-specific bits before these headers can be
considered remotely sane for even testing.
Those running other distros will probably need similar modifications to their
headers to make them userland-friendly.
