C.2. Instructions for BIND 9.1.0Here's how to compile and install BIND 9.1.0 on your Linux host.
C.2.1. Get the Source CodeAs with BIND 8.2.3, you've got to get the source code first. And again, this requires FTPing to ftp.isc.org :
Change to the right directory and get the file you need:% cd /tmp % ftp ftp.isc.org. Connected to isrv4.pa.vix.com. 220 ProFTPD 1.2.1 Server (ISC FTP Server) [ftp.isc.org] Name (ftp.isc.org.:user): ftp 331 Anonymous login ok, send your complete email address as your password. Password: 230 Anonymous access granted, restrictions apply. Remote system type is UNIX. Using binary mode to transfer files. ftp>
ftp> cd /isc/bind9/9.1.0/ 250 CWD command successful. ftp> get bind-9.1.0.tar.gz local: bind-9.1.0.tar.gz remote: bind-9.1.0.tar.gz 200 PORT command successful. 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for bind-9.1.0.tar.gz (3299471 bytes). 226 Transfer complete. 3299471 bytes received in 92.4 secs (35 Kbytes/sec) ftp> quit 221 Goodbye.
C.2.2. Unpack the Source CodeUse the tar command to uncompress and untar the compressed tar file:
Unlike the BIND 8.2.3 distribution, this will create a bind-9.1.0 subdirectory of your working directory for all of the BIND source code. (BIND 8 distributions always unpacked everything into the working directory.) The bind-9.1.0 subdirectory will have subdirectories called:% tar zxvf bind-9.1.0.tar.gz
C.2.3. Run Configure and Build EverythingAlso unlike BIND 8, BIND 9 uses the near-miraculous configure script to determine the appropriate includes and compiler settings. Read through the README file to determine whether you need any special settings. configure supports command-line options that allow you to build without threads, use a different installation directory, and much more. To run configure :
Or, if you need to disable threads, for example, run:% ./configure
To build BIND, type:% ./configure disable-threads
The source code should compile without errors. To install BIND, type this as root:% make all
That's all there is!# make install
