bind 9 installation on fedora missing queryperf and /contrib

Hi all,

Recently installed bind 9 on my fedora core box box. I 've been running a caching name server for a little while now and have been experimenting around with different configurations. I wanted to use the queryperf tool to do some testing agains my box. From what I can gather this should be part of the bind 9 distribution and should be located in the contrib directory. My problem is that I don't have a contrib directory at all.

Here is what packages I have installed.

[root@localhost /]# rpm -qa |grep bind

Here are some search results for contrib and queryperf

[root@localhost /]# find ./ -name queryperf
[root@localhost /]#
[root@localhost /]# find ./ -name contrib
[root@localhost /]#

If I use yum to update, I get that no updates are available.

What am I missing here? Any ideas on what I can do to get queryperf and the rest of the goodies that come in contrib?

Thanks everyone

You can d/l the bind 9.3.2 source and extract it to some directory. Then go to the contrib/queryperf subdirectory and run:
to compile queryperf. Then you can move it to a directory that is in your PATH so you can run it from everywhere.
