I use RHEL 5, set up named server as in documentation, setup named.conf in /var/named/chroot/etc.
I ran "named-checkconf named.conf", return no error.
When I want to start the named service, it has the following error:
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:58: open: /var/named/chroot/etc/named.root.hints: file not found
The file is there, but not found.
