Re: bind9 in unstable



Brian:

Thanks for the comments.  Stock kernel.

Apparently, someone found and fixed this, as tonight an updated version of the bind9 package (1:9.5.0.dfsg-3) was available, plus removing the daemontools, daemontools-run, and djbdns, fixed the problem.

Cheers,
Dave

There doesn't appear to be a "capset" module. I found a comment from my searching about a "capability" module, but that module does not appear to be available.

Did you compile your own kernel?  If you did, did you enable
CONFIG_SECURITY_CAPABILITIES and CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES?  If
you're using the Debian kernel, those should be built in.

capset is the system call to set capabilities (see capabilties(7) and
capset(2)).  Obviously those won't work if you don't have capabilities
enabled.
