    Cannot install caching nameserver

    I tried installing caching nameserver but I got the error below:

    rpm -ivvh caching-nameserver-7.3-3.noarch.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    bind is needed by caching-nameserver-7.3-3.noarch
    bind >= 9.1.3-0.rc2.3 is needed by caching-nameserver-7.3-3.noarch
    Suggested resolutions:
    I executed the ff commands to install bind:

    rpm -ivvh ypbind-1.17.2-3.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivvh bind-utils-9.2.4-2.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivvh bind-libs-9.2.4-2.i386.rpm

    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa| grep bind

    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa| grep caching
    [root@localhost ~]#

    Behind You!
    all because you havent installed "bind-9.3.3-7.el5.i386.rpm"
    its a dependency, you must install bind first

    and ypbind is for NIS client, its not for DNS, make sure that you have the bind-9.3.3-7.el5.i386.rpm

    thanks for your swift response. The problem is I can't download bind-9.3.3-7.el5.i386.rpm. Is this not included in our licensed copy of red hat installer? could you please provide a link where I can download a copy?

    thanks very much
