Description Andy Shevchenko 2005-07-19 12:11:59 UTC
Description of problem:
The stop() function in init.d/named  script has illegal construction.
Next patch fix the problem.

stop() {
        # Stop daemons.
        echo -n $"Stopping $prog: "
-       /usr/sbin/rndc stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || pidof named >/dev/null &&
killproc named -TERM >/dev/null 2>&1
+       /usr/sbin/rndc stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || (pidof named >/dev/null
&& killproc named -TERM >/dev/null 2>&1)

Due to BASH interpretes

/usr/sbin/rndc stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || pidof named >/dev/null &&
killproc named -TERM >/dev/null 2>&1


(/usr/sbin/rndc stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || pidof named >/dev/null) &&
killproc named -TERM >/dev/null 2>&1

instead of

/usr/sbin/rndc stop >/dev/null 2>&1 || (pidof named >/dev/null &&
killproc named -TERM >/dev/null 2>&1)

we have occur error. 

'killproc named -TERM' returns error code, because of process is down already.

Also files in /var/run/ are not removed and error present when next start is
