Description Dave Miller 2002-08-09 22:29:37 UTC
Description of Problem:
A security update for BIND was issued this morning.  Upon installing it, named
will no longer start.  The error message given when you try to start is is:

# /sbin/service named start
Starting named: named: -u not supported on Linux kernels older than 2.3.99-pre3
or 2.2.18 when using threads

We currently have kernel 2.2.16-22
Running named as root is not exactly a palatable idea.

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

Additional Information:

This could easily be fixed by making the rpm file have a dependency on
kernel-2.2.18, which would clue people that they're missing an update before
they lose their nameserver.  Or at a minimum provide some kind of output warning
you that the startup script needs to be modified or it won't run if the kernel
is too old.

Added the requires line

fixed in dhcp-3.0pl1-18

Comment 2 Dave Miller 2003-01-25 02:10:12 UTC
sorry for being nitpicky here, but what does dhcpd have to do with bind?
