Description Aleksey Nogin 1999-11-26 19:08:53 UTC
There is a nasty inconsistency - the original RedHat 5.2 included
bind-8.1.2-5, that was enabled in runlevels 3,4 and 5 by default (in
included /etc/rc.d/rc{2,3,4}.d/S55named symlinks). But the errata release
of bind - binf-8.2.2_P3-0.5.2 does not have the daemon enabled by default
(it includes /etc/rc.d/rc{0,1,2,3,4,5,6}.d/K45named symlinks). As a result,
upgrading to the errata bind suddenly disables bind and even running
chkconfig does not fix it (since /etc/rc.d/init.d/named does not specify

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 1999-11-28 13:31:59 UTC
This is because the package was originally built for 6.1 (where bind=off is the
default), and the people doing the 5.x backport overlooked it.
It'll be fixed if there will be another problem with bind, but this in itself
doesn't become a new update.

For now, change the line
# chkconfig: - 55 45
in /etc/rc.d/init.d/named to
# chkconfig: 345 55 45
