    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 -an
    Active Internet connections (servers and established)

You probably have already a programm listening on por 53. I wouldn't be
suprised that that is "named". Do a ps ax | grep named or, if your system
supports that, do a sockstat to find out.
