    Hi there,

    I'm installing a new server on AMD Phenom Black Edtion and therefore im using the Debian Lenny AMD64-bit version.

    Installing BIND from page 3:

    /etc/init.d/bind9 start
    gives me this:

    Starting domain name service...: bind9usage: named [-4|-6] [-c conffile] [-d debuglevel] [-f|-g] [-n number_of_cpus]
                 [-p port] [-s] [-t chrootdir] [-u username]
                 [-m {usage|trace|record|size|mctx}]
    named: extra command line arguments
    Anyone got a suggestion for this strange error?

    Look to see what's in /etc/default/bind9

    Extra parameters for bind are there. Mine contains a single line:
    OPTIONS="-u bind -t /var/lib/named"
