Kernel support for compressed modules (docker image)


I’m running the VyOS docker image on a host that uses compressed modules (ko.xz) so when VyOS tries to load the modules I get:

#iptables --list
FATAL: Could not read ‘/lib/modules/4.18.0-147.8.1.el8_1.x86_64/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko.xz’: Invalid module format
iptables v1.4.20: can’t initialize iptables table `filter’: Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Is it somehow possible to enable support for module compression?


Hello @iverona, can I ask, which distributive are you use?

Apologies, it was my fault. I was using an old release of the image instead of the rolling one. It’s now properly working.
