Anacron and SysVinit
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The Anacron package does not have installation and uninstall scripts to
add itself to the SysVinit directory, so its jobs are never executed.
Also the stop script may use the SIGUSR1 signal instead of KILL because
this will wait for currently running jobs to end.
These are example install/uninstall scripts:
postinstall script (through /bin/sh):
/sbin/chkconfig --add anacron
preuninstall script (through /bin/sh):
if [ $1 = 0 ]; then
/sbin/chkconfig --del anacron
Acutally anacron isn't supposed to have a sysv init script at all, it's not a
This is fixed in rawhide.
