    Hi, i have followed the tutorial on installing debian etch, i somehow messed up with the settings while installed the dns server application. I can no longer remove or reinstalled the dns server app. and bind9 failed when i restart it. In the log file, it is written that named.conf cannot be found. What do i do ?

    If named.conf cannot be found, then the first thing to check is if you have a symlink to bind in /etc/

    As part of the setup, everything in /etc/bind is moved to /var/lib/named/etc, and a symlink is created in /etc/ to point to the moved files.

    Next step would be to check that /var/lib/named/etc/named.conf exists
