Description Stephen Cuppett 2008-05-14 06:14:02 EDT
Description of problem:

Yesterday (5/13/2008) I upgraded from a fully patched version of Fedora 8 to
Fedora 9 for x86_64.  After the upgrade crond was no longer part of any
runlevel.  The crontabs were okay, they just weren't running.  

"chkconfig --list crond" indicated that crond was supported by not installed,
use chkconfig --add.  chkconfig --add did the trick and got it back to working.

How reproducible:

I assume every migration of x86_64 from 8 to 9 (at least) would suffer from this.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install and patch Fedora 8 x86_64, ensure crond is in runlevels
2.  Run DVD upgrade to Fedora 9 x86_64
3.  Observe crond not in any runlevels.
Actual results:

No crond in runlevels

Expected results:

Crond would remain in runlevels after upgrade if present before upgrade.
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-05-14 07:19:52 EDT
rpm -q cronie

I had problems with postinstall script, which should be solved in version
cronie-1.0-5. So please run yum update for 0updates and let me know, if there
are still problems.
Comment 2 Stephen Cuppett 2008-05-14 07:45:56 EDT
Right after installing last night, yum did prompt me and do an update.

[cuppett@home ~]$ rpm -q cronie

However, it was this morning that I noticed crond wasn't in the runlevels and
had to fix it.  This was after the new RPM came down if it was part of that

I looked at yum.log and cronie didn't appear in it..
