    How can i disable-linux-caps in Fedora Core5 ? (VPS)

    We make this style in Debain, but i wanna make it on Fedora Core 5

    Bind9 on Debian GNU/Linux Woody (3.0), Sarge (3.1), Etch (4.0)

    named provided by the bind9 binary packages fails to start because it is compiled with CAPs option.

    The debian way is to build** your own package without CAPs:

    su -
    cd /usr/src
    apt-get build-dep bind9
    apt-get source bind9
    cd bind9-x.x.x
    vi debian/rules

    Insert the following line after "./configure --prefix=/usr \":

    --disable-linux-caps \

    On a NPTL-enabled system you alse have to replace

    --enable-threads \


    --disable-threads \

    or bind might refuse to run with an other user than root.

    Save the file and go ahead with compiling/installing:

    dpkg -i ../bind9-x.x.x.deb
    echo "bind9 hold" | dpkg --set-selections
