    Either named isn't running, it isn't serving the domain correctly, or you don't have your registrar pointing to the right DNS server.

    Check to see if named is running:

    ps auxww | grep named
    To see if it is loading the zone correctly, you need to look in the messages file. I don't know where this is on Trustix.

    To see if you have your registrar setup right, run a whois on the domain, and do a dig where is listed in the registrar as the primary nameservers.


    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.
