Bind9 Update

Tue May 28, 2019 10:06 am

I would like to update to bind version 9.11 because 9.11 has the Option "-L" which allows me to specify a general logfile which is used before the config file is parsed. How can I update to this version with apt-get? I don't want to compile it by myself or install an unsupported package.

Wait until Raspbian Buster is released ?

Hi,

Have a search for apt version pinning, if the list of dependencies is not massive you may be able to use the Buster version, I have used this quite a bit for small utilities over the years, be careful though, you can destroy your setup !

I will reiterate it really only works for things with unique dependencies or a low number of non-unique ones...

Return to “Raspbian”
