I am currently getting this error message:-

iptables v1.4.12: can't initialize iptables table `filter': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

I have tried insmod, updating the kernel from apt-get but I am really at a loss they are just not working and I have no idea why. what should I do? recompile the kernel? when I was installing the modules when first installing the kernel all IPV4 related modules failed to install. help me people of the internet!

I am using -> Linaro 14.04 (GNU/Linux 3.15.0+ armv7l)

apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r)

I have already tried the above and update everything I still get the same error and I try running this again and it tells me everything is upto date (yes I did update the apts)

edit -- some information from dmesg

I solved this issue in the end, I recompiled the kernel, recopied over the modules and created a symlink between 3.15.0 to 3.15.0+ ... this + was not added to a file for some reason which messed up alot of things adding this I was able to make and install modules
