Default nscd by default?

Per discussion here:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-devel-list/2007-December/msg00355.html
and followup here:
http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-devel-list/2007-December/msg00409.html


Is there a reason we aren't using nscd by default?

I would say the current DNS situation is the most annoying desktop networking-related bug in the OS.

I have to agree, but currently it crashes within half a hour of being
started.

nscd[2066]: segfault at 66de14cc ip b7fc821e sp addd0078 error 4 in nscd[b7fb8000+1e000]

I would say the current DNS situation is the most annoying desktop networking-related bug in the OS.
Or, as I think I point out somewhere in that thread, use dnsmasq which is designed to solve exactly this problem. And it even has a D-BUS interface. The only objection was something about DNSSEC. Which can always be fixed...


Incidentally, it appears OLPC has adopted it to support its connection sharing. Though the main consideration there seems to be the fact that it's a much lighter weight dhcp server than ISC dhcpd...

I'm not sure. As far as I know dnsmasq doesn't support recursion and
caching so you don't get any advantage when you enable it. (btw
recursion has to be supported to have DNSSEC-aware resolver)
