Hi, I'm actually running djbdns over a vserver and it runs great !!. Even I
didn't to add any capabilities, it just worked with defaults. Perhaps you
have problems running the supervise service that usually its started from
/etc/inittab, and inside the vps you don't have inittab... I wrote an ugly
script to get djbdns working, and qmail to, to be started like any other
sysv daemon.

Hope it helps.
