It doesn't work properly.., the .14 rpm that is..

[root at dnstools log]# /etc/init.d/pdns status
23531: Child running on pid 23538
[root at dnstools log]# /etc/init.d/pdns status
23531: Child died with code 1

No logging happens in the /var/log/messages, this also happened when I 
compiled the patched .13 version myself and let it deamonize (thus I let it 
run with a nohup as a normal client)

[root at dnstools powerdns]# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.20-24.7smp (bhcompile at porky.devel.redhat.com) (gcc 
version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-113)) #1 SMP Mon Dec 1 
13:18:03 EST 2003

[root at dnstools powerdns]# rpm -qa | grep gcc

The .13 version tends to die occasionally with an 'out of memory' error.., 
workaround is that I let a cronjob restart pdns every hour..

Any suggestions ?
