Description Jim Knoble 1999-11-15 22:50:16 UTC
The initscript included in the bind-8.2.2_P3-0.5.2 security update
includes the following chkconfig comment:

  $ grep chkconfig /etc/rc.d/init.d/named
  # chkconfig: - 55 45
  $

Unfortunately, this causes the `chkconfig --add' run from the
postinstall script to add the following initscript links:

  $ ls -1 /etc/rc.d/rc?.d/*named*
  /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K45named
  $

This effectively disables the named service on the next system reboot
after installing the security update.

The -0.4.2 package for Red Hat Linux 4.2 includes the same symlinks:

  $ rpm -ql bind |grep rc\.d
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/named
  /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K45named
  /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K45named
  $

and has the same effect.

Also, the version number of the package is misleading, since it
actually appears to include patch4, but is named ..._P3-....

Recommend fixing the initscript problem, grabbing the recent patch5,
and rereleasing the package.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-11-21 11:25:59 UTC
P5 is in Raw Hide; updates for older releases are done only for major security
updates.
You can download the SRPM and recompile, though.
The chkconfig line is there to prevent bind from being started until someone
created a config file. I'll change it in the next version.
