oh,psimation :

   i knew www.rpmfind.net website,when i started searing "
bind",it shown me lots of RPM,but no suitable "bind-8.3.1.
i386.rpm" for me. just a "bind-8.3.1-src.rpm",which just provides me the "source code",i want a RPM that could be installed directly on my RedHat7.1,any idea ??

edqek:
   the ftp website of isc.org just provide the "source code
" of bind8 & bind9,i want a RPM one,could you give a direct
URL that could download the RPM file as i want,thanks.

Hi,

have you tried to compile the code.
Normally with bind it is really a pice of cake and not more hassle than installing a rpm - believe me.

Type:
tar -xzvf the_bind_tar_gz_file
cd to the new directory
type:
./configure
make
make install

(That's not so much more work as typing rpm -Uhv whatever.rpm, is it!?)

Make install will install the code under /usr/local

You have the following choices:
- run "./configure --prefix=/ " instead of "./configure" and overwrite the RH installation.
- delete the RH named and make a symbolic link to the new named instead.
- modify the start script
or

I suggest you go thru the little hassle of adopting the start script. That way you can very easily stay up to date with the code in the future.

Hi,Zook:

   in fact,i already used the source code to compile BIND-8.3.1 without any problem,it's working fine. i ask the question just because i want to know whether there is such a RPM file for BIND-8.3.1,i  could not find it on rpmfind
website or sw else.
   any way,thanks for your comment,after maybe one or two
weeks,if no more good answer,i will accept this.
   say thanks again.  


Cheers

rpm --rebuild *.src.rpm will build a binary rpm for you. man rpm helps.
