Description Gerald Teschl 2000-11-21 12:33:11 UTC
anacron requires /usr/bin/run-parts from crontabs.

However, this file should probably be put in a differnt package anyway,
it should be possible to install only anacron (and not also vixie-cron).

Comment 1 Gerald Teschl 2001-03-23 14:01:34 UTC
Still present in anacron-2.3-15

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2001-04-17 15:06:01 UTC
Still present in anacron-2.3-16

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-03-18 15:27:04 UTC
anacron-2.3-17 still requires vixie-cron.

Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2002-03-19 10:09:32 UTC
I don't see any technical reason for requiring vixie-cron. Anacron does not
seem to need it. For a home pc which is turned on in the morning and
turned off in the evening cron is not needed.

Comment 5 Gerald Teschl 2003-02-21 10:54:05 UTC
Still present in anacron-2.3-25

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2003-07-10 06:59:30 UTC
I added a requirement for crontabs in anacron-2.3-27 and dropped the
vixie-cron requirement in anacron-2.3-29.
