Hi Florian,

Thanks for trying FireQOS.

It seems that your kernel does not have the IFB module. What distro
are you using? Which kernel version?

To verify you don't have IFB in kernel, fo this:

# modprobe ifb

does it work?

Without IFB in your kernel, you are limited to use FireQOS for traffic
control on the output of interfaces only. Copy and paste only the
output interface to see it working.
