Description of problem:

Freshly updated anacron complains on every startup that it failed to connect to hald and that most likely means that the later is not running (while actually it does run).  I do not have an exact wording of an error message as this happens _only_ in a startup sequence and is quickly erased by a login screen even when booting to level 3.

When trying 'service anacron start' after a login then it just shows "[OK}" without any complaints.  In log file one can find "INFO (running with inotify support)" so maybe an error shown on a screen is bogus?

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

How reproducible:
on every startup and only then

Thank you, fixed in rawhide.
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2009-01-28 17:11:23 EST
Yeah, looking closer you are right that this is not anacron problem.  This is another instance of bug 479180; only this time with haldaemon service which is running too late.  After 'chkconfig haldaemon off; chkconfig haldaemon on'
"startup links" switch from S98haldaemon to S26haldaemon and anacron starts with S95.

I just looked at "# chkconfig: 345 26 74" line in /etc/init.d/haldaemon and got mislead by it.

How this is "fixed in rawhide"?  Just changing startup scripts does not make it so. Upgrades will bump into the same issue.
Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2009-01-29 01:39:30 EST
The error message was sent to /dev/null but anyway there will be changes which probably remove anacron "init" script at all.
