locating named.conf failed
running CentOS 5.1, I am unable to start named. I did a yum install of:
I did chkconfig --levels 35 named on
I tried: service named start
and I get the error:
[root@localhost named]# service named start
Locating //etc/named.conf failed: [FAILED]
First thing I noticed is the double forward slashes //etc - this must be a mistake, but how did it happen and how do I correct it.
If I do: ls -la /etc | grep -i bind
nothing is returned, thus named.conf does not exist, but how can this be?
Does it matter that I was in X in a terminal when I did the yum install?
I tried to get some information by debugging:
I did /etc/init.d/named -d 1
and I got the file named.run:

I don't know what to try next. Any help is gratefully accepted.
