Description Jose Carlos Ramirez Perez 2000-06-05 03:10:33 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.

postinstall script (through /bin/sh):
/sbin/chkconfig --add anacron
preuninstall script (through /bin/sh):
if [ $1 = 0 ]; then
    /sbin/chkconfig --del anacron
