Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468956
on shutdown, stopping anacron fails
Last modified: 2008-10-29 09:42:20 EDT
Description of problem:
If one uses Alt-F7 to see the shutdown messages (unfortunately they don't show by default due to bug #439699), there are two "Stopping anacron" messages. The second one always fails, the first may or may not fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown and use Alt-F7 to see shutdown messages.
I don't remember when this started but it was probably within the last month or two. Sorry I can't be more specific. I've seen this in two F9 fully updated clean installs, one running in VirtualBox with a Windows XP host.
Please try anacron-2.3-62.fc9 and let me know.
With anacron-2.3-62.fc9, there are no "stopping anacron" messages at all. I checked System/Administration/Services and anacron is enabled but stopped. Is this all normal default behavior? I never made any anacron-related changes manually.
Yes, that's intended behaviour. This daemon lives only as long as its has something to do, then stopped itself. Usually it runs yours cron.daily jobs after switching on your computer (with some delay) once a day.
I was interested in problem with "double stopping". So it looks like this problem was fixed. Please feel free to reopen it, if your problem persist.
