OK, I found the error entries in syslog but I don't understand why it is
Dec 31 15:31:32 SlackDNS nsd[894]: can't bind the socket: Address already in
I am passing the flag in nsdc.conf  -a so that it will only
listen on that interface.  I have bind9 listening on and  What else could I be missing?  Here is the output of netstat
Active Internet connections (servers and established)

	I just finished installing 2.1.5 on Slackware-Current.  Everything
went ok, until I try to do  nsdc start, nothing happens.  I can run ps -aux
after doing that and nsd is not listed.  I read in the readme that nsd
doesn't do any logging, but I was hoping there was somewhere I could look
for errors.
	Any help would be greatly appreciated.
