Fix Apf ipt_state error on new kernels

Filed under
Howtos

I forgot to add this on my recent kernel howtos but those using apf on the new kernels and getting ipt_state error, since 2.6.15 they changed the name of them kernel modules and apf does not recognize them. Do not enable monokern as some people suggest, this will screw up your passive ftp and will not work good. To fix this problem simply edit the apf.conf as shown below.

nano -w /etc/apf/internals/functions.apf

find (crtl+w)
ml ipt_state 1
ml ipt_multiport 1

Replace with:
ml xt_state
ml xt_multiport

Start or restart apf and all should be fine

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
