Description Gerald Teschl 2002-01-17 05:08:18 EST
Since the normal behavior of
anacron is to exit after all jobs are done the
status message from the init scripts seems
misleading since it suggest that the program crashed.

# service anacron status
anacron dead but subsys locked

It should be changed to "anacron running" or "anacron last
startet at `timestamp of lock file`"
Comment 1 Gerald Teschl 2003-02-21 05:55:52 EST
Still present in anacron-2.3-25
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-07-09 22:44:23 EDT
*** Bug 91179 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2003-07-10 03:21:53 EDT
In anacron-2.3-27 and later /var/lock/subsys/anacron is no longer being touched.
