Hey Sam, I have a question for you. I dont know why I haven't asked before.

You often mention that you support, or perhaps that MaraDNS is supported
on, or designed for, Scientific Linux, or certified for use on
Scientific Linux or CentOs/Redat... something like that.

I don't really understand that.

I mean, I can understand you saying, MaraDNS' requirements are as
follows: this lib >= version x.x.x; that lib, any version; Linux kernel
x.x.x w/blah compiled in or support for blah module,

But basically, MaraDNS runs on any modern Linux distro - compile,
install, run. It has nothing really to do with any particular distro.

I run MaraDNS and Deadwood on debian, CentOS, Slackware, Gentoo,
Sorcerer, and a couple of others. No problem.

So why the impression that it doesn't run on Linux, unless one is using
only certain distributions - you don't even list the versions of those
Distros for the Linux OS, and I kinda doubt it would run on Redhat 4.2
or Redhat 5.1 - versions that existed long before there was even a
Fedora distro.

Can you shed some light on the reasons for explaining supported
platforms that way?

Nice of you to say that, but really, how often does that happen lol.
It's not like we're talking about BIND ;)

Kindest regards,
