Description Bojan Smojver 2002-01-20 02:50:36 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011126

Description of problem:
I've upgraded to it from release 1 and something was changed so that the -u
option doesn't work any more. Something along the lines of 'you have to have
2.2.18 or 2.3.99 kernel or better'. I have 2.4.17...

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RPM.
2. Run /etc/init.d/named start

Actual Results:  Named refused to run saying that this version of the kernel
doesn't support setuid().

Expected Results:  Should run, just like package release 1 did.

Using rawhide binaries on a non-rawhide system is not supported. Rebuild the
source RPM on your system and it's likely to work.
