Note that the default dwood3rc file for Deadwood will not work on systems without a working 127.0.0.2 loopback IP (I believe some BSD systems do not have 127.0.0.2 for loopback); this IP is used so that "make install" gives a user on CentOS 5.5 (and possibly other versions of Linux) a working MaraDNS and Deadwood configuration that works "out of the box" (MaraDNS listens on 127.0.0.1; Deadwood listens on 127.0.0.2).
I tested this configuration by setting up a special virtual machine to make sure "make install" does the right thing on a CentOS 5.5 system that never installed MaraDNS before. In addition, I have updated "make uninstall" to fully uninstall "maradns.zoneserver" (as well as Deadwood).
The updated MaraDNS can be downloaded here:
