Being the NSD FreeBSD port maintainer I noticed this thread on the list
(although I still didn't receive your report to me directly). I have long
ago stopped running FreeBSD+NSD setups but have been maintaining the port
the best I can, its open for grabs if anyone is interested...
If you want, I can take over the port. I already do the openddnssec
port, and am somewhat closer to the nsd source.
>From what it looks to me I have to ask if you remembered to
put nsd_enable="YES" into your /etc/rc.conf file?
The rc.d scripts do not have to end with ".sh", it affects how
they are run, ".sh" scripts are sourced into the current shell
rather than a subshell and the startup process will terminate
if the script does, non ".sh" scripts on the other hand are not
sourced into the current shell and do not stop the startup
process if they terminate. As far as I know this also applies
to FreeBSD 6.0
The rc scripts methods of FreeBSD have been in a state of flux for
a while so this might indeed be part of the problem.
