02 Oct 2004 is now running bind 9.3

I finally got running bind 9.3 (as FreeBSD 5.3-BETA7 does, which is chroot’ed by default). While this is accomplished primarily with help of src/UPDATING’s instructions and Doug Barton’s excellent mergemaster(8). BIND stands for “Berkeley Internet Name Daemon” and is the de-facto standard of DNS implementation.

I have first run into problem with bind9. It is configured to listen by default and I blindly adopted this. The result is that no slave servers get updates from it. With a change this goes well.

The directory scheme has been changed, too. It’s more clean now.
