Install caching-nameserver on a Mandriva AMD64 machine


I want to use my machine for a internet sharing but I dont succeed to install the caching-nameserver package.

My machine is a AMD64, on which I have Mandriva 2006. This machine connects to the internet on one ethernet card and connects to another Mandriva machine on the other ethernet card. From the later, I can ping the ethernet card connecting to internet and that's all. I can not ping any other internet address.

Here's what I have on my system:
[root@localhost Téléchargement]# urpmf --name bind

[root@localhost Téléchargement]# urpmq --list-media

[root@localhost SOURCES]# urpmf --name caching-

Whenever I try to install the caching-nameserver packade, I have output message:
[root@localhost Téléchargement]# rpm -ivh --force caching-nameserver-9.2-2mdk.noarch.rpm
erreur: Dépendances requises:
bind >= 9.2.3-0.rc2.1mdk est nécessaire pour caching-nameserver-9.2-2mdk.noarch

bind >= 9.2.3-0.rc2.1mdk is necessary

Do you have any ideas of what I should do to be able to install the caching-nameserver please?

Thanks for your help,
Best regards,

Dinh Tran

Sounds like you are going to have to look into
route -n
/etc/resolv.conf (probably ok)
maybe dnat option in shorewall, and general shorewall setup
also you will need to check ipv4_icmp_echo (this is not the exact name) setting

Not sure of the specifics for what you want to do

I actually tried to install with both shell command and software management wizard but I still have dependency error. Finally I found out that my AMD64 machine was installed with the wrong version of Mandriva which is for 32 bits processor.

After installing the right Mandriva, I still have to force installing caching-nameserver but the rest works correctly.

Thanks a lot for all your help
