Are you sure it actually starts? But that's beside the point
really. (You can check with "ps ax | grep named | grep -v grep"

This happens when you try to use old zone files from bind 8.2.x
with bind 9. bind 9 requires a "$TTL blah" at the top of the
zone files (or it will in future. That's what it's complaining

This looks like you have a comment or something in your zone
file, but it's not "commented out."
Assuming you've just got a caching nameserver installed (i.e.
you aren't the primary/secondary nameserver for any domains) the
easiest would be to remove the zone files and the config files
and reinstall bind (and caching-nameserver.)
What probably happened is that your zone files (or your
named.root (or whatever you called it)) got corrupted, and when
you upgraded to bind9, the config wasn't overwritten because it

That too. This is not the place to ask RedHat specific
questions, although, with a little bit of work, this could be
made a generic Linux/bind9 question that could apply to debian
or any other distribution.

Hope that helps.
