Restarting DNS Service in Slackware

I made a change to one of the named files on our server, and know that I need to restart the named service for the changes to take affect. I tried the kill -HUP and the PID of the named service and nothing happens after that. I ps -waux and grep for the named service and the time it has been running hasn't changed. Has the service restarted or is there something else I need to try. Other resources I looked at said to try to restart the named service in the /etc/rc.d directory, but named is not located there. The server is running Slackware Linux 10. Let me know if there is anything else you need to know, and any help would be appreciated.

The "rndc" command is typically used to manipuate named. Type: rndc
for a list of valid command line arguments. ex:
rndc reload

Thumbs up The classic SLackware way still works

I know this is an old thread, but for those who might still be looking for this answer, using /etc/rc.d/rc.bind restart is the preferred way to restart the name server on Slackware. The 'restart' option on rndc is not implemented.
