[SOLVED] IPv6 and bind
« on: March 30, 2011, 02:00:20 pm »
I don't know if this bug has hit anyone but I noticed dmesg spitting out a lot of the following msgs for a few different pids
requested_mask="::r" denied_mask="::r" fsuid=114 name="/proc/7552/net/if_inet6" pid=7554 profile="/usr/sbin/named"
I did a bit of digging and found the following bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bind9/+bug/289060
According to the status won't be fixed for 8.10 as it is EOL.
It seems to only bite if IPv6 enabled.

I'll need to chk later if my system is behaving itself.

If this fix is necessary - how can it be added if the fix isn't being applied for this distro? looks like 10.04 should have this fixed.

If you really need the fix you can backport it from a new release with the correct support. This can be anything from trivial to close to impossible.

Well after checking this last night - Media Directors are booting quickly again :)
bind is operational.
