BTW, in the meantime I found out that it helps to delete the /etc/lwresd.co=
file. I did not manage to configure a working version of /etc/lwresd.conf b=
it seems to work with the built in defaults.
Is there some kind of magic in that file? Mine looked like this:

options {
     pid-file "/var/run/named/lwres.pid";
     allow-query { any; };
     allow-recursion { any; };
     listen-on port 921 {; };

logging {
    channel default_debug {
        file "/var/run/named/named.run";
        severity dynamic;
    category default {default_syslog; default_debug; };

and starting lwresd shows no problems in the log file and it's listening on=
953 and 921.
