#1265 closed defect (fixed)

Anacron installs misconfigured sample anacrontab file for Panther

Reported by: johnl@… Owned by: bchesneau@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


The file "anacrontab.sample" that comes with the anacron port tries to run the tasks cron.{daily,weekly,monthly} by executing:

nice run-parts --report PREFIX/etc/cron...

However, "run-parts" does not exist on my Panther system. In digging around and looking at the system-standard /etc/crontab file, it seems that the right command is "periodic". So those three lines should be changed to:

periodic PREFIX/etc/cron...

Hope this helps.

Fix for this was comitted yesterday. A basic run-parts script was added to allow use of either method (periodic or run-parts). -rshaw
