I'm running FC3. My server was running fine for a long while. I restarted it the other day a boom, both the syslog and named failed to start at boot. I also tried to start them once in the O.S. and all I get is this error message:

Starting named: named: chroot(): Permission denied

and when trying to start syslog, it just sits at the command prompt. I do updates when necessary. I'm thinking an update might have affected something, but I'm really not sure.

Can someone please help me out?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Hi,

-----------------------------------------------------
The BIND nameserver has had its security tightened.
The /var/named/ directory is no longer owned by
"named", but rather by "root". Slave zone files should
now be stored in the new /var/named/slaves/ directory,
which is owned by "named". In addition, a new
bind-chroot package makes it possible to run the
named daemon in a chroot() "jail" (located in
/var/named/chroot/) for greater security.

I'm not sure how to proceed at this point.
Do I need to change the ownership?
I don't have the bind-chroot package as far as I know.
I also don't have a /var/named/chroot directory, as I
never ran bind in chroot.

-----------------------------------------------------

Sincerely
Robert B
