Description Philippe Troin 2007-11-14 05:24:12 UTC
/etc/init.d/NetworkManager starts the "bind" service.

When NetworkManager was using dhcdbd (pre-F8), it made sense to have named
started as resolv.conf was always pointing to the localhost named instance.
Now that dhcdbd is gone, NetworkManager should not need named.

BTW, I think that dhcdbd was a better approach, as the local named instance
would try to query the DHCP-provided DNS server and was falling back to
resolving from the root servers if the (DHCP-provided) forwarders were not
responsive.
Any chance to have dhcdbd back?

Phil.
