When I run: modprobe ip_queue, I get the error FATAL: Module ip_queue not found, but I installed libnetfilter-queue-dev.

How can I fix it?

ip_queue module is included in kernel (package linux-image-xxx-generic). You don't need to install any more packages. What's the output of dpkg -S ip_queue.ko? – Eric Carvalho Dec 21 '12 at 12:49

ip_queue is obsolete and was removed from kernel 3.5.


The nfnetlink_queue modules provides more advanced user-space packet queueing mechanism.

You should migrate to nfnetlink_queue (provided by package libnfnetlink0).
