SubjectRe: Iptables-1.2.9/10 compile failure with linux 2.6.7 headers
The current linux libc headers package is much more frequently updated 
and closely matches released kernels. LLH is a sanitized linux headers
package and is currently based on 2.6.6 headers.

Yes you can build iptables on 2.6.6 for a 2.6.7 kernel. I have built
iptables once or twice a year and built kernels once or twice a week.
Iptables continues to work fine.
