Default Named not starting on NetBSD boot

in my rc.conf file i have the following lines
Code:
[...]
named_enable="YES"
named_program="/etc/rc.d/named"
named_flags="-c /etc/namedb/named.conf -u named -t /var/chroot/named"
[...]
i've tried all the paths i can find for 'named_program'

can anyone see what i've got wrong or even some tips to check

Cheers

You should put, rather than "named_enable",
Code:
named=YES
in /etc/rc.conf (no quotes needed).

I would remove the reference to "named_program", I'm not sure that it's relevant.

You can set named_flags how you want, but to run it chrooted take a look at the comments in /etc/defaults/rc.conf,
Code:
# To run the named(8) DNS server as an unprivileged user under a
# chroot(2) cage, uncomment the following after migrating the contents
# of /etc/namedb to /var/chroot/named/etc/namedb
#
#named_chrootdir="/var/chroot/named"
The last uncommented line should of course be placed in /etc/rc.conf .
