Dear listmembers, dear John,

yes, dazuko and avguard is running this way, but to run name server (bind 
9.2.3) and  time server (xntp 4.0.2a) lets me desperate.

That is a SuSE9.1 system running latest kernel 2.6.5-7.108-default.
The module commoncap.ko is not compiled regularly by SuSE edition, the 
Makefile in /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-7.108-default/security/ does not include the 
commoncap.c. So I used the Makefile of the source tree from kernel.org, which does its work properly in the SuSE source tree.

One pain is:

debby:~ # rcnamed start
Starting name server BIND 9                                             done
debby:~ # named: capset failed: Operation not permitted

debby:~ # rcnamed status
Checking for nameserver BIND 9                                  unused
debby:~ # 

the other:

debby:~ # rcxntpd start
Starting network time protocol daemon (NTPD)                    done
debby:~ # rcxntpd status
Checking for network time protocol daemon (NTPD):               dead
debby:~ # 

else I read in some postings elsewhere that samba has the same problem to 
share one machine with dazuko. This is the same with the kernel from 

My personel lack is that I am not a kernel hacker and I don't know about these 
capabilities, only heard that it is new in kernel 2.6.x.

Now lets have a look at the concerned /boot/grub/menu.lst entry:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title Linux
    kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 vga=0x317 splash=0 selinux=0 \ 
capability=0 desktop resume=/dev/hda2 showopts
    initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd

the vmlinuz and initrd are linked to the current kernel version 
2.6.5-7.108-default. selinux=0 and capability=0 I was recommended to set here 
even the option
in kernel .config but it will not harm.

Hopefully waiting for some hints that let me run named and xntpd and later I 
want to try samba on that server that shall sort out the virusses ...
