Description of problem:
The DNSSEC key generating tool in BIND doesn't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
By running "dnssec-keygen", see output below.

Actual Results:  [root@yxa root]# dnssec-keygen -a RSA -b 512 -n zone
dnssec-keygen: failed to generate key josefsson.org/RSAMD5: openssl failure

[root@yxa root]# 

Expected Results:  It should have generated a RSA key for my zone!

Works here... Does 9.2.0-1 (rawhide) still crash for you?

No, it does not work, but now there is a different problem.  It seems as if 
the command never terminates.  See the attached strace output.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2001-12-08 12:24:44 EST
Ok, I am an idiot.  It does work, it just takes long time.  I would expect RSA
key generation to take long time, but I also expect it to be CPU bound which
wasn't the case, and the strace looked weird.

Conclusion: RedHat 7.2 "bind" package does not work.  RawHide bind package does
