Caching nameserver on Fedora 20

+1 vote
67 views

I'm trying to set up a caching name server on a server on my home network. All the instructions I've been able to find online refer to the caching-nameserver RPM, but that doesn't seem to be available in Fedora 20.

So my questions are:
* What happened to caching-nameserver?
* What (if anything) has replaced it?
* Are there any good, easy *current* instructions for doing this?

It seems like it should be a fairly cookbook task, so I shouldn't have to learn all about bind to accomplish it.

As I recall, the caching-nameserver rpm was just the basic zone files for a caching nameserver. So you install bind and set it up following any tutorial you choose for this purpose.

Or you can go with dns-masq which as I recall defaults this way.

Network Manager won't let me do that, and the command-line tools I used back in the older versions of Fedora don't seem to exist any more.

I'm looking for Fedora 20 dkim-milter package (which was in F19 and lower), but it seems as it isn't available - probably not even in the F21). Know anyone?

Where can I see the fate of the packages that were formerly and now are not it (e.g. LTSP and others) ?
