    When I try to run the make command I get the following errors:

    cache.c:336: error: invalid lvalue in assignment
    cache.c:340: error: invalid lvalue in assignment

    I've attached the complete output file.

    thanks in advance!

    Please try to install MyDNS version 1.1.0 instead of 1.0.0.

    Ok, now the installation worked. Thanks!

    I'm curious though, when I first started mydns it hanged, that is I didn't get back my promt. What's up eith the group/user nobody? This is my output:

    root@bowie:/etc/init.d# mydns start
    mydns: Extraneous command-line arguments ignored
    mydns[5012]: error loading gid for group `nobody'
    mydns[5012]: using gid 65534 from user `nobody'

    I'll continue the rest of the howto tonight. Thanks for your active interest!!

    Maybe you dont have a group nobody, on some linux systems the group is named nogroup instead.

    I think it is ok that MyDNS uses the group of the nobody user instead, so dont worry :)

    You must change the group in /etc/mydns.conf:

    group = nogroup
    This is described on page 1 of the MyDNS tutorial:
