    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:
    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 http://mirrors.lycos-vds.com/debian/ sarge main non-free contrib
    #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
    bind9 - Internet Domain Name Server
    bind9-doc - Documentation for BIND
    bind9-host - Version of 'host' bundled with BIND 9.X

    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

    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) ...

    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 :(

    i have removed all other sources so sources.list is now just

    deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian etch main

    I then ran apt-get update but still got the same problem

    I would suggest to do an:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install bind9

    But you've installed bind9_9.3.4-2etch1_i386.deb already..:(

    It's rather late now, so go to sleep now ;)

    Good luck
