Description of problem:
When a laptop with apmd is booted, anacron is not run. However, is suspended and
resumed it is. This has the inconvenient that if the laptop is not
suspended/resumed very often the anacron jobs will not run very often.
The start event of apmd should start anacron, in the same way as the resume
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot laptop with apmd configured
Actual Results: anacron is never run if the laptop does not go through a
suspend/resume cycle. Note that adding anacron as a service to start on boot is
not an option, since that would not prevent running anacron if the laptop is on
Expected Results: Run anacron on the apmd start event. Maybe it would be of
interest to run it also when the power changes from battery to on-line (if
anacron is configured not to run on batteries).
I have a problem with anacron that is pertinent
to this bug report. I have all cron-related
services turned off, including anacron.
When I suspend my laptop, then resume, I don't
want anacron to run. Why should it, since it
is not an enabled service.
Closing out bugs on older unsupported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please reopen if it persists on current releases such as
Fedora Core 3.
