Actually, the more I think about it, the more I suspect that it was the
problem with rehash command. The instructions are as follows:
chmod 755 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/services.sh
ln -s /usr/local/etc/rc.d/services.sh /usr/local/sbin/services
rehash; services start
Now when I came to the rehash command, I saw in my tty that command was
not found. I just sheepishly went on and issued services restart.
Could that be the reason why DNS is not working? I killed svscan (I think
it was automatically started again) but it did not help.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
