Recently I installed RedHat Linux 6.2 on a low end PC to act as an internet gateway and firewall for a home network.
As I have been worried about possible insecurities in the firewall I decided to download and install the latest version of bind for the distribution.
I downloaded bind-9.2.1-0.6x.3.i386.rpm
I then performed a reboot of my linux server,
and issued commands :
/sbin/service network stop
rpm -i bind-9.2.1-0.6x.3.i386.rpm
And recieved a message that the bind rpm could not be installed.
I checked my syntax and decided to reboot the server.
Now however the boot process reaches the installation of the sendmail service and then hangs.
Can anyone suggest possible solutions to this problem?
