Description of problem:
cron.daily/tmpwatch generates error messages when attemping scan
directories that are non-existant when X sub-systems are not installed. The
install was based on the standard server install but with no X server
components. The message follows:
Subject: Cron <root@nsA> run-parts /etc/cron.daily
error: lstat() of directory /var/cache/man/X11R6/cat? failed: No such file
The X11R6 and local directories don't exist in /var/cache/man for our
installation. I would recommend expanding the conditional checks that are
used in /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch that check for /var/cache/man to include
checks for the sub-directories for situations where they don't exist.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install without X packages
2. Configure sendmail
Actual Results: cron sends a daily nag messages complaining about "No such
file or directory"
Expected Results: Would like to not see the message.
$ rpm -q man
and if you get the same output, this is a duplicate of bug #47859.
And also a duplicate of #44117 which seems to be the first one.
This is truly a duplicate of some other bugs reported in the last week. Just
didn't see them when searching.
