    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.
