Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446477
Selecting bind-chroot during install not executed properly
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:39:37 EDT
Description of problem:
During F9 install from DVD iso file on hard drive bind-chroot was selected as
one of the packages to install. However the correct set of files was not
installed into /var/named/chroot/etc/ or /var/named/chroot/var/named/ and the
symlink from /etc/named.conf was not made.
However once the system was running after install doing
yum remove bind-chroot
yum install bind-chroot
did install the correct files and links using the manual re-install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda as per DVD install iso - Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso
How reproducible: Same behaviour on two different installs with the same method.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F9 from DVD iso and include bind-chroot in package selection
2. On running system check files in /var/named/chroot/ incorrect
3. do yum remove bind-chroot
4. do yum install bind-chroot
5. Now check files in bind chrooted directory are correct and the symlink
from /etc/named.conf has been created correctly. bind-chroot now works.
Actual results:bind-chroot is not instaled correctly during install.
Expected results:bind-chroot should install correctly if selected as one of the
packages to install from the install media (DVD iso)
Additional info:Tested on two different installs, and install iso tested for
sha1sum verification ok.
Please attach /root/install.log to this bug report. Sounds like a bind
packaging problem, perhaps.

install.log as requested
It certainly seems there was a problem with bind-chroot during install with
warnings about user/group "named" not existing.

This will be because bind-chroot has no dependency on bind; it should have one
to provide the "named" account.
Yes, that dependency was mysteriously dropped, not sure why.
bind-9.5.0-32.rc1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Excellent on the update though of course this will hit anyone installing off the
original install media, unless there is a re-spin later that people use instead.
Perhaps a comment can be added to the release notes if an updated version is
made, to warn anyone installing from the original files with no internet
connection that they need to install bind-chroot after the install is complete,
rather than including it in the package list on the original install?
bind-9.5.0-32.rc1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update bind'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-4644
bind-9.5.0-32.rc1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
