Default apt-get install bind9

when I try to install bind9 using the perfect setup for debian etch using the above I get the following error:


~# apt-get install bind9
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package bind9 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
dnsutils
E: Package bind9 has no installation candidate


I have tried to use the /etc/apt/source.list as in the perfect setup and the original one that came on the vds.
I have installed everything else from the perfect setup.

Can anybody please help?

Did you do an aptget update first?
What do you see if you execute: apt-cache search bind9 ?
What's in your /etc/apt/source.list ?

I have already run apt-get update

my /etc/apt/source.list is

#deb-src http://mirrors.lycos-vds.com/debian/ sarge main non-free contrib

#deb http://mirrors.lycos-vds.com/local/debian sarge vds
#deb-src http://mirrors.lycos-vds.com/local/debian sarge vds

#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://ftp.debian.nl/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.nl/debian/ stable main
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian etch main


and the results of apt-cache search bind9 are

# apt-cache search bind9

Why do you have deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian etch main within your /etc/apt/sources.list and not deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian etch main ? By the way i think you can comment it out with a #.

These three lines should be enough for the Debian current stable branch:
deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ stable main
deb-src http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ stable main
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main

I have just added that one the run apt-get update but still get the same problem.

I have just downloaded bind9_9.3.4-2etch1_i386.deb
then I ran

Code:
dpkg -i bind9_9.3.4-2etch1_i386.deb
then i got

Selecting previously deselected package bind9.
(Reading database ... 22986 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking bind9 (from bind9_9.3.4-2etch1_i386.deb) ...
Setting up bind9 (9.3.4-2etch1) ...
Starting domain name service...: bindnamed: capset failed: Operation not permitted

The Bind documentation says this about your error:
The capability module, part of "Linux Security Modules/LSM", has not been loaded into the kernel.

Why did you not change the sources.list as i suggested first, followed by an apt-get update ? I think things are messed up now
