[yast-devel] Re: YaST dns-server module silently failing

I solved it, thanks to help from the IRC ("twkm" suggested using
strace instead of gdb, and that worked great).

I then ran $(strace /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base dns-server qt), which
pointed me to the log file /var/log/YaST2/y2log . I saved the last few
lines of this at [].

The fix is to create /var/lib/YaST2/yast2-dns-server_reverse-zones
with the content


instead of having an empty file.

hope this helps someone in the future,

Sorry to "bump" a message, but could some please get back to me? Is
there a verbose/debug option when starting YaST so I might figure out
what the problem is?

Please tell me if this is the wrong list.

Thanks very much,

Hi all,

   I have a machine on which the YaST dns-server module is silently
failing (no command line output is produced). Fortunately, the server
seems to be working, I just can't configure it. I don't want to edit
the DNS entries by hand, if possible. Any assistance would be much
appreciated. The output on /var/log/messages when restarting named is
here [1].

Thanks very much,
