NetBSD sparc 3.0_BETA NetBSD 3.0_BETA (SPARC-TEST) #0: Wed Jun 15 16:21:50 CEST 2005
The NetBSD Guide (section 23.4) states that the only thing to do to get a cache-only nameserver is to put named=yes into /etc/rc.conf.
However "/etc/rc.d/named start" fails with:
Jul 4 22:32:39 sparc named: none:0: open: /etc/named.conf: file not found
Jul 4 22:32:39 sparc named: loading configuration: file not found
Jul 4 22:32:39 sparc named: exiting (due to fatal error)
This is a quite fresh install with nothing relevant changed.
NetBSD 2.0 is also affected.
Do "/etc/rc.d/named start"
Look at the error
The configfile is in /etc/namedb/named.conf.
Seems it was moved without changing the compiled-in path to it.
