Bug Description

Binary package hint: bind9

Related to changes from Bug #203169; filing as a new bug because that one is getting too big for its own good.

The bind9 init script's call to status_of_proc() call should pass named's pidfile. Patch attached.

Hi Lamont-

Debian upstream has accepted the full status_of_proc() function, including pid file support. This simplifies the bind9 status action. It requires lsb-base >= 3.2.14.

I'm dropping this updated patch here for posterity, perhaps you can integrate it into Debian's bind9 in due time, when lsb-base 3.2.14 hits 'testing'.

bind9 in oneiric still has this problem:

you can reproduce as follow:
- bind not running:

/etc/init.d/bind9 status
echo $?

the correct lsb output is 3

same problem amavis and many other scripts, this way you cannot use ubuntu lsb script in cluster products such as pacemaker
