Sorry for the delay with fixing this; I've added a patch to -13 that should resolve this problem:

Firestarter no longer shows "active connections."

"Error reading /proc/net/ip_conntrack: No such file or directory"

as detailed here:
http://www.kernelhardware.org/firestarter-on-centos-6/

I attempted the same fix, and then realized that the checksums wouldn't pass in makepkg...I thought of symlinking a file as a hack, but that didn't work (I admit I am very noob-ish at this, and apprehensive about trying more fixes).

Is there a fix I can do, and outside of that, a patch or fix to the package here?

Thanks!


Below is an excerpt from the above link:

Untar the source file
# tar -xzvf firestarter-1.0.3.tar.gz

Modify the statusview.c file
# cd firestarter-1.0.3/src
# vi statusview.c

Change the line
#define CONNTRACK_FILE "/proc/net/ip_conntrack"
TO
#define CONNTRACK_FILE "/proc/net/nf_conntrack"

Needs net-tools as a dependency. It's not part of base system now..

Hmm, seems to maybe be a problem with binutils or gcc.
I recently upgraded binutils (2.21.1-2 -> 2.22-2) and gcc (4.6.2-1 -> 4.6.2-3) and now I do have the same problem.

Seems to be fixed with these changes:

Please test and let me know if not.

I also can't compile. libx11 1.4.4-1 is installed:

You're right, it's supposed to be created by filesystem. Mine was gone... Weird. Anyway, thank you! :)

I don't think so... I have a /var/lock folder already and I never created it...
