Description John Haxby 2006-08-14 14:45:11 UTC
Description of problem:

After starting the choot'd name df reports

   df: `/var/named/chroot/proc': Permission denied

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): bind-9.2.4-16.EL4, 

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install bind, bind-chroot and caching-nameserver
2. Start bind
3. run df
Actual results:

As above.

Expected results:

No complaints.

Additional info:
I notice that FC5 seems to have fixed this in a different way to the proposed
patch (attached): I think it ignores the bind file system type, though I'm not
certain.  This patch works nicely on RHEL4 though and doesn't cause any problems
that I can detect.
