Description tom 1999-10-19 05:49:24 UTC
Just did a fresh install of RH6.1 on a system.  Named didn't
start automatically, so I started looking around.  In all
rcx.d directories, it was K45named.  Under a RH6.0 install I
did on another system, it was S55named in rc3.d, rc4.d and

I renamed the files to match my RH6.0 install, and all looks

It's a change in policy. You can use ntsysv, or
chkconfig --level 345 named on
to turn it on.

When upgrading from RH 6.0 to RH 6.1...
The next thing I noticed is that my DNS (named) was no
longer running.  To fix this rename the "K45named" file in
rc3.d, rc4.d, and rc5.d to "S55named".  And then issue the
following command:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/named start

NFS start moved to init 4 from init 3 in RH 5.2

Why all these policy changes? named doesn't even start in
RH6.1 unless manual tweaking is done! Yuk!
