Can’t get named to start after compiling and slave doesn’t replicate

Bind
We are trying to build two DNS servers/email relays in our DMZ. We wanted to use postfix for mail relay so we used mandrake 10.1. We discovered it doesn't include bind so I downloaded it then ran ./configure, make all, make install as recommended in the o'reilly book. I obtained a named startup script and made sure it pointed to the right directories and put named.conf in /etc and the zone files in /var/named. When I cd to /etc/init.d and run ./named start, the message is "Starting named: execvp: No such file or directory" and it fails. What am I leaving out of the configuration? While we were struggling with mandrake 10.1 I decided it would be quicker to build mandrake 9.1 systems since they have postfix and bind as part of the install. Then we could work out the problems with 10.1 later. We now have bind working on these systems but we haven't been able to get a slave domain on one system to replicate changes from the master. On the master named.conf we have also transfer lines pointing to the slave and on the slave we have a masters line pointing to the master. Once again, I am wondering what we left out. If you need to see parts of any of the files, please let me know. Thanks. rt

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Could you show:
a) /et/named.conf
b) /var/log/messages of both servers after issuing the following commands:
on master:
rndc reload
on slave:
rndc refresh (in case it barks use reload)

    Victoriano: Since I posted this question, Jerry discovered where the errors are logged when bind is executed. He discovered a bunch of syntax errors in many of the config files. When he finishes cleaning things up I will either post the solution if he fixed it, or the files you asked for if he didn't. Sorry for the delay and thanks for the response. rt
