Comment 2 Alexander Todorov 2008-12-05 03:34:51 EST
postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
# Add crontab entry for logwatch dmeventd service
[ -f logwatch/dmeventd_cronjob.txt ] &&
crontab -l 2>/dev/null|cat - logwatch/dmeventd_cronjob.txt|crontab -

/usr/bin/crontab is provided by vixie-cron which is installed after dmraid package. dmraid doesn't require vixie-cron to be installed.
Comment 3 Heinz Mauelshagen 2008-12-05 07:59:55 EST
