Description Carl Preddy 2007-08-27 20:06:09 EDT
Description of problem:
anacron-2.3-53.fc8 mails an error message every night that concludes with 

/usr/bin/run-parts: line 5: [: ==: unary operator expected

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F8test1 for x86_64

How reproducible: like clockwork

Steps to Reproduce: none; seems to be installed this way 
Actual results: error email from anacron to root 
Expected results: not that 

Additional info:
Line 5 of /usr/bin/run-parts reads
[ $AUX1 == $AUX2 ] || exit 0
I believe the intended construct should be 
[ $AUX1 == $AUX2 ] && exit 0
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-08-28 02:59:39 EDT
Correct is [ "$AUX1" == $AUX2 ] || exit 0
That means if they are not the same, then don't run anything.
