libcap needs to be updated!
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:34:32 EST
With today's Rawhide update, named no longer starts:
Starting named: named: capset failed: Invalid argument: please ensure that the
capset kernel module is loaded. see insmod(8)
According to http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/6/533, the problem is an out-of-date
libcap. Apparently libcap in Rawhide needs to be updated and named needs to be
linked against the newest libcap.
I've built libcap-2.06-1.fc9 in Rawhide. Named isn't linked against libcap at
all, so I wonder how this is could be the cause for your problems.
the new libcap has a different soname and I've untagged it from rawhide as I
need to notify the maintainers of dependent packages first.
And now it has reappeared due to the rel-eng GCC 4.3 autorebuilds. This breaks
dependencies on core components like dbus-libs and is also causing many of the
subsequent autorebuilds to fail.
I've built a new libcap (2.06-3) package that should fix these problems.
