From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.21; Mac_PowerPC)

Description of problem:

All the bind configurations generated by bindconf refer to named.ca, that is installed by 
caching-nameserver, that's not a dipendence.

In this way bindconf generates configurations that don't work.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install bindconf, remove caching-nameserver

2. Generate a configuration

3. Try to start named


Actual Results:  Named doesn't start (worse, the init.d script says "OK", but the daemon 
doesn't start).

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2002-08-08 16:40:52 EDT
I have moved the lines
zone  "." {
        type hint;
        file  "named.ca";
In build redhat-config-bind 1.8.1-12.  This will be in the next version of
RedHat Linux.

Out of the default /etc/named.conf and put them into /etc/named.custom.  So if
you  don't want to use the cacheing name server you just need to remove these lines.
