Description Robert Scheck 2004-05-22 15:27:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Well, it isn't a problem, but normally the caching-nameserver files
are always required to configure a bind server, so I personally would 
include them into the bind package, because caching-nameserver 
provides /etc/named.conf and the root server file for example.

So I would be happy, if the caching-nameserver could be merged into 
the bind dns server package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
A possible solution for that would be the diff below. Maybe you've
got a better solution for it... :-)

Expected results:
Merging of caching-nameserver's files into bind dns server package.
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-08-12 17:02:53 EDT
The caching-nameserver installs ONLY the configuration for a 
caching-nameserver ; those who want to configure other types
of name server using BIND would not be helped by having the
caching nameserver files, nor by any existing configuration
files being overwritten. The root cache file needs to
be updated frequently from ftp://ftp.rs.internic.net/domain/named.root
so anyone setting up a nameserver would get it from there. 
New versions of bind will be updated to create an /etc/named.conf
if it does not exist which just includes the rndc.key file.
