You´re lucky, I just setup a DNS CACHE on my DL box last week. ;-)
You have to do everything they explain on the DJB website, except the
The very first step is to activate daemontools, which requires one line in
/etc/inittab . A sample line is already their, but it´s buggy and you have
to add a few unique letters in front of the first ":" . Then just
uncomment it and save the file.
After a "kill HUP 1" it should start (check the syslog).
Unfortunately they don't write in the documentation that you have to
create 2 user accounts, I used "dnscache" and "dnslog" .
Don't forgett to run save-config, once it's running. ;-)
