Description Jason Vas Dias 2006-01-25 12:13:06 EST
Description of problem:

Only on the ia64 platform, dns-keygen, a Red Hat utility to generate a new
hmac-md5 TSIG key, always returns a non-zero exit status. This does not occur
on the i386 or x86_64 or ppc64 platforms - weird.

[root@nec-tx7-1 tmp]# uname -a
Linux nec-tx7-1.lab.boston.redhat.com 2.6.9-27.EL #1 SMP Tue Dec 20 19:13:51 EST

[root@nec-tx7-1 tmp]# cat /etc/redhat-release

[root@nec-tx7-1 tmp]# rpm -q bind
[root@nec-tx7-1 tmp]# dns-keygen
[root@nec-tx7-1 tmp]# echo $?

[root@ibm-x326 ~]# uname -a
Linux ibm-x326.lab.boston.redhat.com 2.6.16-rc1-1M #1 SMP Tue Jan 24 14:56:04

[root@ibm-x326 ~]# rpm -q bind
[root@ibm-x326 ~]# dns-keygen
[root@ibm-x326 ~]# echo $?

dns-keygen is used during installation of the bind RPM to generate the rndc
key, and by the system-config-bind package. Luckily, the RPM installation
does not check the dns-keygen return status, but system-config-bind does,
so this bug disables system-config-bind key generation on the ia64 .

keygen.c was not returning any defined exit status - it now does.
