The command and error message:

gtwy ~ # ip rule add from 64.251.23.186 table t1
RTNETLINK answers: Operation not supported

Older article of the same problem, but it did not help me: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-696982-start-0-postdays-0-postorder-asc-highlight-.html

I have looked on google at great lengths to try to find a solution. It seems that my kernel configuration is missing something? Any help or ideas would be appreciated. My system/kernel is: 2.6.36-gentoo-r5 #3 SMP Thu Jan 13 10:49:06 EST 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X3220 @ 2.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux.

I am posting this on SuperUser since this system is used as a workstation and this problem is unrelated to specific tasks that are handled exclusively by servers.

iproute2 is installed:

this is what instructions on the web should write instead of how to unpack a tar file... –  DirtY iCE Jun 19 '12 at 0:47
