[slackware-security]  bind 10.2/11.0 recompile (SSA:2009-015-01)

Updated bind packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to address a
load problem.  It was reported that the initial build of these updates
complained that the Linux capability module was not present and would refuse
to load.  It was determined that the packages which were compiled on 10.2
and 11.0 systems running 2.6 kernels, and although the installed kernel
headers are from 2.4.x, it picked up on this resulting in packages that
would only run under 2.4 kernels.  These new packages address the issue.

As always, any problems noted with update patches should be reported to
security@slackware.com, and we will do our best to address them as quickly as
possible.


Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bind-9.3.6_P1-i486-2_slack11.0.tgz:
  Recompiled.  The -1_slack11.0 package was compiled on a Slackware 11.0
  system running a 2.6.x kernel, and this caused problems for machines running
  the default 2.4.33.3 kernel.  This package should run correctly.
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
