Description Joachim Frieben 2019-02-05 16:02:41 UTC
Description of problem:
On current Fedora Rawhide, service firewalld appears to run as expected according to command 'systemctl status firewalld', but the behaviour of command 'firewall-cmd' is weird, e.g. no default zone and no active zone is listed even when a wired interface is active, and the log file /var/log/firewalld gets filled with error messages upon running firewall-cmd, e.g. like:

"2019-02-05 15:19:51 ERROR: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.

2019-02-05 15:19:51 ERROR: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.

2019-02-05 15:19:51 ERROR: COMMAND_FAILED: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.

2019-02-05 15:19:53 ERROR: INVALID_ZONE
2019-02-05 10:30:19 ERROR: '/usr/sbin/iptables-restore -w -n' failed: iptables-restore: line 11 failed

2019-02-05 10:30:19 ERROR: '/usr/sbin/ip6tables-restore -w -n' failed: ip6tables-restore: line 11 failed

2019-02-05 10:30:19 ERROR: COMMAND_FAILED: '/usr/sbin/ip6tables-restore -w -n' failed: ip6tables-restore: line 11 failed"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot current Fedora Rawhide live media.
2. Query default zone and active zones when wired connection is up.
3. Run 'firewall-cmd set --default-zone public'.

Actual results:
Command 'firewall-cmd' reports errors.

Expected results:
Command 'firewall-cmd' runs as expected.

Additional info:
- Despite the error message, 'firewall-cmd get --default-zone public' no returns "public" but still no active zones.
- Fedora 29 works as expected.

Comment 1 Eric Garver 2019-02-05 16:23:48 UTC
This was also reported on freenode, but I was unable to reproduce. Can you downgrade ebtables and then retry?

Comment 2 Joachim Frieben 2019-02-06 09:37:51 UTC
(In reply to Eric Garver from comment #1)
1. In order to reproduce this issue boot a recent live media, e.g. Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-20190204.n.0, on bare metal or in gnome-boxes. After the GNOME desktop has come up (wired connection activated), log file /var/log/firewalld already shows the following entries:

  .. ERROR: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.
  .. ERROR: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.
  .. ERROR: COMMAND_FAILED: '/usr/sbin/ebtables-restore --noflush' failed: Bad table name 'nat'.
2. Downgrading package ebtables from ebtables-2.0.10-29.fc30 to ebtables-2.0.10-28.fc29 and restarting service "firewalld" restores normal operation. The last entry in the corresponding changelog reads:

  "* Mon Jan 21 2019 David Abdurachmanov <david abdurachmanov gmail com> 2.0.10-29
   - Disable --as-needed to resolve segfaults".

*** Bug 1673625 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2019-02-07 17:44:25 UTC
I have no idea _why_ reverting to -28 would fix this, but I can confirm that it does.

Searching shows that Ubuntu has this issue open as well:

... which implicate their patch (to disable --as-needed in one place) that we applied in -29.

So I got rid of that patch and simply disabled --as-needed everywhere in ebtables (%undefine _ld_as_needed) and that build works again.

Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2019-02-07 17:46:05 UTC
Rawhide build with fix:

(keep in mind that rawhide is really slowly tagging builds right now... very slowly)

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2019-02-07 18:04:30 UTC
It's built now, please pull it out of koji and confirm that it fixes things for you.

Comment 7 Joachim Frieben 2019-02-07 20:58:22 UTC
Build ebtables-2.0.10-31.fc30 restores normal operation of utility firewall-cmd.

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2019-02-22 19:02:48 UTC
All firewall tests passed in last Rawhide compose test in openQA, so closing.
