Exclamation problem on pf @ freebsd 7.0

hello there. sorry if this similar question been asked before in this forum.

my problem is, i install freebsd 7.0 and after that compile the kernel to enable pf (using the same method like freebsd's handbook said):

device pf
device pflog
device pfsync

options ALTQ
options ALTQ_CBQ
options ALTQ_RED
options ALTQ_RIO
options ALTQ_HFSC
options ALTQ_CDNR
options ALTQ_PRIQ
options ALTQ_NOPCC

and i put everything inside /etc/rc.conf


and guess what? pf is not loading when startup. i have to manually restarted the pf using /etc/rc.d/pf restart. seems like rc.d/pf doesn't work although rc.conf set pf_enable="YES"

is that a bug? i never have this kind of problem when using version 5.* or 6.*

plus, kldstat only shows:
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 7 0xc0400000 910b90 kernel
2 1 0xc0d11000 6a32c acpi.ko
3 1 0xc6c4f000 22000 linux.ko

after that, i try to put:

inside /boot/loader.conf and also doesn't work.

i already compile the kernel with pf and put appropriate line inside /etc/rc.conf

and the pf still do not loading when freebsd 7.0 boot up.

thank you

To troubleshoot, try swapping back to the GENERIC kernel and see if PF loads. I know that ALTQ will not be in the kernel, but the goal here is to get PF loading upon startup.

Additionally, you do not need all those lines in rc.conf to get PF running. This is all that is needed:

I think switching back to GENERIC to test is a good approach.

You might also look at dmesg -a | less and then search for 'pf' to see if it's trying to start at boot time (and failing).
Kill your t.v.

hello guys.

hello there. i think this conversation can be closed right now. when i try to look at dmesg output:

Starting pflog.
May 14 16:09:53 pflogd[471]: [priv]: msg PRIV_OPEN_LOG received
Enabling pf.
no IP address found for securehost.xxx.xx
could not parse host specification

Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded

which securehost.xxx.xx cannot be resolved while booting because no dns server was contacted. when i remove the hosts from pf.conf then pf is loaded when booting.

thank you for now

credited to anomie that suggested to look at dmesg output
