They work fine. '/etc/bind' is a link to '/var/lib/named/etc/bind /var/cache/bind'.
[tuzjfi.pts/1]$ file /etc/bind /var/cache/bind
/etc/bind: symbolic link to /var/lib/named/etc/bind
/var/cache/bind: symbolic link to ../lib/named/var/cache/bind
Why wouldn't they work? You probably read them backwards (or I WROTE
them backwards :)
They are only for me, the administrator. So I don't have to type in
the new path (it's easy to forget :).
Mossad iodine FBI SDI security World Trade Center Iran Waco, Texas
Kennedy president assassination Cocaine South Africa NORAD tritium
