Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58462
init script status message
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:03 EDT
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`"
Still present in anacron-2.3-25

In anacron-2.3-27 and later /var/lock/subsys/anacron is no longer being touched.
