The conntrack* modules create those virtual files.

The conntrack_tools package is looking at the wrong directory it seems;
I believe it should be looking at /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter.


There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into
two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures
in opposition to each other.  This, in my humble apprehension, is to be
dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.
