Description Robert Scheck 2007-04-10 20:59:23 UTC
Description of problem:
Latest update broke vixie-cron for me including all cron-jobs:

Apr 10 22:36:17  tux crond[1419]: (CRON) STARTUP (V5.0)
Apr 10 22:36:17  tux crond[1419]: (mailget) ORPHAN (no passwd entry)
Apr 10 22:36:17  tux crond[1419]: (sa-update) ORPHAN (no passwd entry)
Apr 10 22:40:01  tux crond[3530]: (vnstat) CMD (/usr/sbin/vnstat.cron)
Apr 10 22:40:01  tux crond[3531]: (vnstat) CMD (vnstat /usr/sbin/vnstat.cron)

--- snipp ---
From: Cron Daemon <root@localhost>

Subject: Cron <vnstat@hurricane> vnstat /usr/sbin/vnstat.cron

Unknown arg "/usr/sbin/vnstat.cron". Use --help for help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, see above.

Expected results:
Working stuff like in 4.1-78 ;-)

Additional info:
Vixie-cron was built without PAM support, but this shouldn't make any 
difference, shouldn't it?

Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-04-12 12:01:56 UTC
PAM doesn't matter. Where have you your jobs? In /etc/cron.d or did you do them
using crontab? I have also the ORPHANs in log, but the jobs are runned.

My jobs are orphans only when they come from /etc/cron.d, jobs made by crontab
run normally.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2007-04-12 12:05:43 UTC
/etc/cron.d/vnstat (from vnstat package)

Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2007-04-12 16:49:45 UTC
Fixed in vixie-cron-4.1-82.fc7
