Install bind9 debian wheezy chrooted
I've just attempted installation of bind9 into the newly released Debian Wheezy, following the squeeze howto.

When I got to the point of starting bind9 at the end, it failed with:

/etc/init.d/bind9: 5: /etc/default/bind9: bind: not found

I've studied the script, but cannot see what is wrong. Can anyone help with this?

What does the commandline say when you do


apt-get install bind9

It says:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
bind9 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

I followed the "how to" right through, starting with installing bind9, stopping it, moving files around and so on, right up to attempting to start bind9 again at the end. It's at this point I get the error.

I thought it might be an issue with your sources.lst, but it's not. It looks like it has been installed.

I'm not sure the problem, but you can try:


which bind9


whereis bind9
Those will just tell you the location of the install. I'm not sure why restart isn't working.

Falko told me to follow this installation howto for Wheezy, and I didn't have any issues:

Thanks - it would work, it just does the basic install of bind9 which is only the first step in the how-to that chroots bind. It's after the chroot install that the problem arises.
