Comment 1 Graham King 2004-02-19 00:00:02 UTC
Adding a new /var/named/chroot/dev/random with minor number 8 (using
mknod) does not get rid of the syslog message at named startup.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-25 20:13:42 UTC
/dev/random has the wrong owenership it should be
crw-r-----  1 root named 1, 9 Mar 24 09:46 random

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-25 20:14:19 UTC
Looks right in bind-9.2.3-9

Surely you don't mean that?  Those ownerships and permissions might be
suitable for the __chroot'ed__ dev/random used by named, but not for
/dev/random itself.

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-26 15:26:48 UTC
Yes I meand /var/named/chroot/dev/random.

Sorry about that.

Comment 6 Graham King 2004-07-16 15:35:29 UTC
Apologies for the long delay.  I've recently upgraded to Fedora Core 2
(bind-chroot-9.2.3-13), with the following result:

ls -l /var/named/chroot/dev
total 0
-rw-r-----  1 root named 0 Mar 25  2003 null
-rw-r-----  1 root named 0 Mar 14  2003 random

Ownerships look reasonable.  Permissions might be OK although I would
have expected at least g+w on null.

However, both files are now ordinary files, not devices.  Surely that
can't be right?

This was fixed in bind-9.2.4rc6-6 (Latest version bind-9.2.4rc7-10).

With bind9-9.7.3.df same problem today;

seems solved setting group 'bind' (not worked with 'named')

ll /var/bind9/chroot/dev
total 0
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root    0 Oct  5 09:09 log
crw-rw---- 1 root root 1, 3 Oct  5 02:21 null
crw-rw---- 1 root bind 1, 8 Oct  5 02:21 random
