Description of problem:
The DNSSEC key generating tool in BIND doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
Expected Results: It should have generated a RSA key for my zone!
Works here... Does 9.2.0-1 (rawhide) still crash for you?
Created attachment 39987 [details]
strace from running dnssec-keygen
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.
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
