#17581 new defect

dnsmasq fails to start with DNSSEC enabled

Reported by: howar Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: Cc:


I enabled DNSSEC validation as per and forgot to install the dnsmasq-full package. Consequently, dnsmasq would refuse to even start due to at least one missing file:

daemon.crit dnsmasq[1692]: cannot read /usr/share/dnsmasq/trust-anchors.conf: No such file or directory
daemon.crit dnsmasq[1692]: FAILED to start up

I understand that a different package is needed and it works after installing dnsmasq-full, but this behaviour of the package provided with the base installation isn't very good. The init script should not add the DNSSEC options unless it's the full version.

This isn't a duplicate of ticket #16857. That ticket reports a different issue.
