--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-8117
2009-07-29 20:59:32
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : anacron
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.3
Release     : 78.fc11
URL         : http://packages.debian.org/stable/source/anacron
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 (or Fedora) system. It's part of triple - cronie, anacron
and crontabs, which care about execution of jobs also with often
reboots or hibernation.
