Description Vilius Šumskas 2007-03-17 00:27:36 UTC
Description of problem:
After kernel upgrade from version 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6 to 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 
oidentd doesn't return idents to masquared connections anymore. This is because 
in the kernel 2.6.20.x there are /proc/net/ip_conntrack no more (huh? w.f?!). 
It is now called /proc/net/nf_conntrack.
