Description David Thiede 2001-07-17 11:07:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010701

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

/etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch:

error: lstat() of directory /var/cache/man/X11R6/cat? failed: No such file
or directory

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.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install without X packages
2. Configure sendmail
3. 
	

Actual Results:  cron sends a daily nag messages complaining about "No such
file or directory"

Expected Results:  Would like to not see the message.

Run this:

$ rpm -q man 
man-1.5i2-0.7x

and if you get the same output, this is a duplicate of bug #47859.
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2001-07-17 16:24:06 EDT
And also a duplicate of #44117 which seems to be the first one.
Comment 3 David Thiede 2001-07-17 20:58:57 EDT
This is truly a duplicate of some other bugs reported in the last week. Just
didn't see them when searching.
