I've compiled a new kernel (well multiple times) I've checked and I appear to have iptables modules selected correctly in the kernel config and I recompiled iptables with apt-get source but I keep getting this error:
iptables v1.4.2: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Invalid argument
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

lsmod shows the following modules loaded:
iptable_filter 2848 0
ip_tables 10576 1 iptable_filter
x_tables 14084 1 ip_tables

freelink debian is using lenny sources, and I'm using the latest of everything so not sure what else to check does anyone have any ideas?

Kernel version:
uname -r
2.6.28.5

Have also tried a compile natively instead of cross compile no difference and also tried compiling iptables straight from netfilter.

Strace output can be found here http://pastebin.com/m2fae4402

cat /proc/net/ip_tables_names
filter

So the table exists...

Did you run depmod after upgrading your kernel?

Ran depmod -a but problem still occurred.

The fact I have: iptable_filter ip_tables x_tables loaded in memory (automatically) I presume proves there's no problems loading dependency modules. I tried an earlier version of iptables just now iptables-1.4.1.1 same problem so running out of things to check.
