I don't recall you mentioning your specs, but I found BIND to have minimal demands on my system. Certainly, things like X and applications that use it, demand more. > where would I find the pertinent log files any I could find did not > have an entry that was related to the problem. /var/log/messages usually has messages in it related to trying to start up things like BIND. You could grep the output to a file, and send that to the list (you need to be root to read the messages log). e.g. grep named /var/log/messages > /tmp/named.txt -- (Currently running FC4, in case that's important to the thread) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I read messages from the public lists.
