Bind 9.3.2rc1 beta2 for OS/2 & eComStation now available

December 21, 2005 by Paul Smedley

This is the second public release of Bind 9.3.2rc1 compiled for OS/2 & eComStation and is available from

It is built with Innotek GCC 3.3.5 GA and requires the libc06 runtime dll which is available from

This has not been extensively tested, but seems to work locally for me.

Known issues:
* currently requires a 32-bit tcpip stack (ie tcpip v4.1 or higher). If there is demand for a tcpip v4 compatible version, I'll see if I can build it.

My Bind 8 configuration file required only minor changes to work with Bind 9 - I had to remove 'deallocate-on-exit' option, and remove 'category load { xfer-log; };'

Note that errors in the log similar to:
21-Dec-2005 18:49:08.310 none:0: open: /bind9/etc/rndc.key: file not found
21-Dec-2005 18:49:08.310 couldn't add command channel file not found
21-Dec-2005 18:49:08.314 no source of entropy found
don't seem to affect functionality.

Details on rndc.key can be found at - it should be possible to specify the location of rndc.key in named.conf and clear this message.

Details on the 'source of entropy' message are at It seems possible to work around this one by creating a random key using dnssec-keygen and referencing it in named.conf

I'm currently unsure about the "couldn't add command channel file not found" problem.

Please send feedback to paul at smedley dot info
