Greetingz!

How about a little more information to go on?

1) What Linux/UNIX distribution are you running? (Included name and version)
2) What DNS caching program are you using? (Include name and version, maybe a URL to it's site)
3) Do you have a "/var/named/chroot" directory? (Because that's what it's complaining about)

Any code output you have should be cut-and-pasted like this;

Your output here.

Looks like you are trying to chroot. Is that correct? Does the directory exist and are the permissions correct?

I am using
uname -r 2.6.18.194.32.1.el5

Centos 5

the /etc/chroot/named directory is available.

I just installed yum -y install caching-nameserver

i copied /name.caching-nameserver.conf to the /etc/named.conf
i edited the /etc/named.conf

named.caching-nameserver.conf
//
// Provided by Red Hat caching-nameserver package to configure the
// ISC BIND named(8) DNS server as a caching only nameserver
// (as a localhost DNS resolver only).
//
// See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
//
// DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - use system-config-bind or an editor
// to create named.conf - edits to this file will be lost on
// caching-nameserver package upgrade.
//
options {
listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; 192.168.152.190; 192.168.152.2; };
listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
directory "/var/named/";
dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";

// Those options should be used carefully because they disable port
// randomization
// query-source port 53;
// query-source-v6 port 53;

allow-query { 127.0.0.1; 192.168.152.190/24; 192.168.0.0/24; };
allow-query-cache { localhost; };
};
logging {
channel default_debug {
file "data/named.run";
severity dynamic;

Well, there seems to be your problem.
