1 I did a update --world tonight and I also ran into this. It's probably
2 destined for bugzilla, but I wanted to ask first.
4 After updating to bind-9.1.3-r7 I had a problem getting it to run. I
5 determined the problem to be the following. The named startup script
6 executes this: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /usr/sbin/named -- -u named -n 1
8 Since named switches to uid 'named' it doesn't have access to write to
9 /var/run/ However, I noticed that there is now a
10 /var/run/named dir that is owned by named.named...This is all well and
11 good but the named binary doesn't try to write it's pidfile to that
12 directory and bombs. I looked in the ebuild and the bind documentation
13 and there is a way to configure it to point to another directory: on the
14 configure script it needs --localstatedir=/var/run/named instead of
15 --localstatedir=/var but this also means that the /etc/init.d/named
16 script needs to be edited to point to /var/run/named/run/ for
17 the stop portion of it. Maybe the extra 'run' in there could be edited
18 out with by modifing the bind source, I didn't dig that far, I just need
19 it running. :)
20 Also /var/bind needs to be owned by named.named in order for the zone
21 files to be read (since I did an upgrade, this bit me, it may not on a
22 new install)
