Shorewall (as of 1.4.5) currently doesn't work "out-of-the-box" with the 
recently released 2.6.0-test1 kernel.  Fortunately, the problems are 
trivial and easy to fix.  The check for OS version only checks for 2.4* 
and 2.5*, 2.6* obviously needs to be added to this.  The next part is with 
loading the modules.  Currently, loadmodule checks for 
$MODULESDIR/$module.o or $module.gz.  In 2.5/2.6, the suffix is .ko 
instead.
