RE: script query

BIND 9.1.0 on kernel 2.4.2

Hi guys,

maybe some of you have come across with this problem that i have (or is it
really a problem?).

I am running a redhat 6.1 box, 
built Linux 2.4.2 kernel successfully, happily configured lilo, rebooted
fine.
built BIND 9.1.0 successfully (i.e. no compile errors).
run bind, looks fine, (ps -ef says its running).

$ tail -f /var/log/messages : (numbers of modprobe complaints appear every
time I run named, i.e.)

Apr 2 17:29:02 tux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module net-pf-10

$ dig  <at> tux host.my_local_zone
  returns SERVFAIL

I wonder, what part of bind is requiring the net-pf-10 module. Is it
affecting the named server?

any thoughts will be appreciated.

cheers,

Re: BIND 9.1.0 on kernel 2.4.2

Could you supply samples of the error messages please  :-)

Oh and have you also upgraded your modutils to >= 2.4.2?

X11 for Slackware

Hi,

    I'm using slackware 7.1  (it was the smallest one I could find at the 
time, it's more up to date then Redhat) and I've been trying to compile 
several window managers using the distro off 
ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/slackware/ , but that version's too old. 
Slackware isn't supported much, any ideas on what to do? (And Tien, where 
are those CDs???)

                              Jeremy

please ignore

Re: X11 for Slackware

The errors are about certain things not being declared, mostly related to 
XShape-. I have since discovered they were only implemented in XF86 4.x, 
it's just the local FTP doesn't have the latest version. Urrr, Sorry for the 
trouble, I just discovered that the server hasn't been updated lately. The 
main problem was Slackware isn't supported much anywhere. Is there a 
universal fix for that? (ie, another compatible distro?)

Re: X11 for Slackware

No idea on Slackware, and I've never tried to compile my own xservers.

Have you looked at Debian at all?  Not compatable with Slackware (as
far as I know) but it's a fairly pure distribution.  By pure I mean
they don't seem to screw around too much with the packages the
maintainers package up and distribute.  Red Hat's pppd is a good
example of such a screw up, when it comes to using other software the
Red Hat one seems to lack the ability to do some things.  It stops one
of my programs working, and people who use it need to recompile their
pppd if they want to use it on a red hat platform.

Regards,
Robert Davidson.

RE: BIND 9.1.0 on kernel 2.4.2

thanks,

For the SERVFAIL return of named, I figure it out already. BIND9 requires
$TTL right after the $ORIGIN of the zone db files. It doesn't accept the old
format of RFC1035. [i.e.  <at>  IN SOA ns hostmaster (20010402 1800 900 604800
86400 ); ]

re: modutils (I have 2.3.9-6) will upgrade now ;)

cheers,

RE: BIND 9.1.0 on kernel 2.4.2

upgraded to modutils-2.4.2-1.

same log output:

	Apr 3 11:39:41 tux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module net-pf-10

only if dig query is from itself (localhost), dig query from clients does
not produce this modprobe log and returns the query with NOERROR plus the
queried RRs.

any more ideas?

cheers,

Assuming you are not running IPv6, you don't need net-pf-10, disable it in 
/etc/modules.conf with

        alias net-pf-10           off

Then run

        depmod -a

I am guessing you don't have IPv6 or something required to build it and 
you are enabling support for it when you compile BIND.

Linux C IDE

Hi Guys,

Can anyone give me some pointers to a good C/C++ IDE for Linux.  An X 
interface is not a pressing need, indeed low priority, but would be nice.

Cheers,

Gawain
