Hi Matus,


Performed following test.


# nano /usr/local/bind/etc/named.conf
changing;
/etc/name.root

to;
/usr/local/bind/etc/name.conf


# /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart


# /usr/local/bind/sbin/named -u named -t /usr/local/bind -c
/etc/named.conf -g

Still the same.


Ah I found something new on re-editing named.conf restoring its
original state /etc/named.root


Before I followed that howto leaving a white space between " and
/etc/name.root"

On changing /usr/local/bind/etc/name.root back to /etc/name.root I
cleared the white space.

Here it seems waiting for input???


On another console;

# ps aux | grep -v grep | grep named
named 1196 0.0 13.1 6900 4348 pts/0 S+ 13:41 0:00
/usr/local/bind/sbin/named -u named -t /usr/local/bind -c
/etc/named.conf -g

# host www.linux.org 127.0.0.1

On the first console I have to press [Ctrl]+c to exit. Then it prints;
28-Oct-2008 13:51:33.413 shutting down
28-Oct-2008 13:51:33.413 no longer listening on 127.0.0.1#53

I suppose getting it done now???
