    2 kernel compile questions...

    when doing 2.6.26+ or w/e it is, how do you enable conntrack, what options do i need to enable under make menuconfig?
    Code:
    net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_acct = 1
    net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_generic_timeout = 120
    error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_icmp_timeout" is an unknown key
    error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close" is an unknown key
    error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_time_wait" is an unknown key
    error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_last_ack" is an unknown key
    error: "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait" is an unknown key

    Hi,

    Could you please tell me, which Operating system you are doing, and which kernels are currently installed and what is your actual goal?

    Thanks,
    Noman

    While recompiling a kernel, make sure that you load the old kernel configuration if there are no hardware changes.

    This is what you should do:

    cp /boot/config-`uname -r` /new/kernels/source/location/.config

    make menuconfig

    To search for a module, hit the key '/' in your keyboard and type the string eg: "/conntrack" in the kernel dialog menu.

    ip_conntrack is an iptables module and you should see that along with it.

    If the compile is complete, check if the module is loaded using "lsmod | grep conntrack" command.
