Is RPM Doomed?
The slashdot readers here might have already read this, but I'm curious to see what people think. The article in summary deals with the woes of RPM based distro's and suggesting that switching to a non-RPM distro (debian, gentoo, etc) might be an answer, however they also mention that perhaps the major RPM distros (Redhat, Suse, Mandrake, etc) should get together and figure it out.

The full detail of the article is here:
BIND DNS and Backup servers.
I am currently running a BIND server on a Slackware box, and i am pointing the DNS records to my windows box which is doing hosting for my ASP sites. I want to make a backup server so that if server A goes down, then server B will pick up right where A left off. Now my idea was to some how write a perl script to change out the records to point to another server (Server B).....but what about other caching servers that have the old records......Any Idea's?!
Mail bounces... "sender domain must exist"
This may not be technically a pure Linux question, but since I'm running a Linux box and that's part of my problem, I figured I might as well ask it here.

I am connected to the Internet by a local cablemodem provider, MCHSI. I use a Dynamic DNS system, zeropain.com, to provide my machine with a domain name (terrania.zeropain.com); I send email from it using sendmail.

Lately, I've been getting some email bounces from some places I've tried to send mail. The error message follows, after LJ-cut, but the gist of the thing is they complain "sender domain must exist" and apparently they think terrania.zeropain.com doesn't.

Is there something I can do about this? (And if it involves setting sendmail or mutt to route my outgoing mail through my ISP's mail server instead, can you please tell me how to do that?)
