(the latest about delphinusdnsd)

The main configfile now is in the /etc/delphinusdns/ directory

September 20th, 2019

I did this change earlier, and changed where the default configfile is expected to be by the daemon. Before this change the default config file was just /etc/delphinusdns.conf. This change was made to keep things a bit cleaner. I have updated everything in the source and will look at the website in the near-future.


Ubuntu needs 'make' to compile delphinusdnsd

September 15th, 2019

The other day I installed delphinusdnsd as a test, on a vanilla ubuntu. All the packages that the README file listed worked, except the 'make' package was not listed. I added that with apt-get install make (or apt install make would work too). This was an error that was so early that it didn't even attempt to compile delphinusdnsd because make was missing. I will examine this on another vanilla debian system and if it needs make there too, I'll add 'make' to the list of packages to install in the README hints.

An example delphinusdnsd log, examined

Here is a real log taken from my log file, this is how to read it:


Let cooler temperatures prevail

September 11th, 2019

I'm back after a 2 months pause. It was simply too hot to be coding this summer. We had 3 heatspell periods this year and since delphinusdnsd is written on my spare time I wasn't willing to kill myself on it. I did commit a minor fix (a log in a return, more on that later perhaps) in the daemon yesterday and I'm trying to aquaint myself with the code again so that I can work towards the release at New Years 2020. What needs to be done is an axfr'ing slave mode to delphinusdnsd. I'm curious whether I'll make it. Also I'm currently unemployed looking for work but the chances are I will not find any work until next year. If I do find work, this codebase will suffer unfortunately, it's a matter of priorities. I'd rather be making money and code on delphinusdnsd on the side than the alternative. Also I'd like to point out that I have left IRC chat until October some time so that I can focus on this work. Otherwise I'd be chatting along and the code would suffer.


Welcome to the new DelphinusDNS blog!

September 11th, 2019

I have modified the blog (found at to be working for's website. I will be covering any news here, that are of short term nature including announcements. If you come across this you may wonder why I didn't have this since the beginning, and well, I didn't think I'd have so much news at first. I hope this will keep you informed. There is an RSS feed if you're interested in subscribing it. It's shortened and you still have to click on it for the full article but it's better than no RSS feed. Enjoy.
