I'm considering changing this to dcron instead. Could we have comments (NOT a flamewar) on which cron is best maintained to include in the book.

Summary: fcron-1.1.1fcron-2.0.0 - syslog.conf needs line added.

LFS does not provide a log for the cron facility. Write additional configuration to fix this.

Larry Lawrence: "syslog.conf needs line added" see above comment in bugzilla.

Updating bug to fcron-2.1.0. I don't think there are any differences in the install instructions needed. Larry, do you know? (please reply through bugzilla)

I don't know, but I can test it tonight.

comment:6 by llawrence@…, 21 years ago

fcron 2.1 will work with the current scripts. Fcron added PAM support - if available - so if BLFS user has install PAM, fcron will use it by default. Since LFS does not install PAM, there in no effect of the new default. I have no knowledge of PAM, but I can not imagine a case where you would not want fcron to use it if it were available. If there is such a case, I would suggest adding --with-pam=no to the configure command.

One other note, the author recommends not using this in a working environment because the PAM feature is not fully tested. Is there any policy on when to stay with stable? when unstable is o.k.?

Install script asks "Would you like to add fcron in the directory /etc/rc.d/init.d/ and in runlevel 2,3,4 and 5?", but a yes also installs in runlevel 0 and 6 (at K60). Need to "mv /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K60fcron /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K08fcron" and repeat for rc6.d.

Summary: fcron-2.9.2fcron-2.9.3

Version increment (2.9.3);

"The save-to-disk code has been partly rewritten, and is much faster and more robust than in 2.9.2. It should avoid any loss of data in case of an hardware failure, system crash, etc. Two new commands were added to fcrondyn: renice and kill. Some code cleanup, bugfixes, and minor security bugfixes and improvements were made."
