In FC6 the named.conf file is not created at install. I've found that
the following workaround creates all of the needed files correctly.
If you haven't configured anything yet, you might just uninstall bind-
chroot to follow the steps exactly, or you can try running system-
config-bind (locally), and see if that alone is enough to generate
1. yum install bind bind-libs bind-utils system-config-bind (not bind-
2. Run system-config-bind (locally), and exit without creating any
which successfully creates the standard conf and zone files.
3. Install bind-chroot, which successfully creates the chroot
and all of the proper links.
Hope this helps,
