Fedora Core 6 Update: anacron-2.3-44.fc6



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-1119
2006-10-30
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : anacron
Version     : 2.3
Release     : 44.fc6
Summary     : A cron-like program that can run jobs lost during downtime.
Description :
Anacron (like `anac(h)ronistic') is a periodic command scheduler.  It
executes commands at intervals specified in days.  Unlike cron, it
does not assume that the system is running continuously.  It can
therefore be used to control the execution of daily, weekly and
monthly jobs (or anything with a period of n days), on systems that
don't run 24 hours a day.  When installed and configured properly,
Anacron will make sure that the commands are run at the specified
intervals as closely as machine-uptime permits.

This package is pre-configured to execute the daily jobs of the Red
Hat Linux system. You should install this program if your system isn't
powered on 24 hours a day to make sure the maintenance jobs of other
Red Hat Linux packages are executed each day.

* Thu Apr 13 2006 Jason Vas Dias <jvdias redhat com> - 2.3-38.1
- fix bug 188403: anacron SysVinit locking:
  Since anacron just exits when it has no more work to do, the
  initscript cannot do normal /var/lock/subsys/anacron lock file
  creation, else messages such as 'anacron dead but subsys locked'
  will appear when changing init levels. 

  Now, the anacron process itself creates its own 
  /var/lock/subsys/anacron SysVinit lock file and
  /var/run/anacron.pid pid file to co-operate more
  gracefully with the initscript system.
