Are you using nscd?
Comment 2 keith adamson 2003-02-24 20:26:44 EST
No.  Could it be that when I ran "up2date -i caching-nameserver" and the "bind"
package was added automatically by up2date ("bind" wasn't installed before hand)
but up2date actually installed the "caching-nameserver" package before the
"bind" package and it's the "caching-nameserver" package complaining because the
"bind" package hasn't added the "named" user id yet?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-24 20:30:20 EST
If that happens, that's an up2date bug.
Comment 4 keith adamson 2003-02-24 22:54:58 EST
Well I tested it and that's the case.  Install caching-nameserver alone:

Now install both caching-nameserver and bind at once:

# up2date -i caching-nameserver bind
