Fedora Update Notification

Name        : anacron
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 2.3
Release     : 57.fc8
URL         : http://packages.debian.org/stable/source/anacron
Summary     : A cron-like program that can run jobs lost during downtime
Description :
Anacron (like `anac(h)ronistic') is a periodic command scheduler.
It executes commands at intervals specified in days.  Unlike cron, it
does not assume that the system is running continuously.  It can
therefore be used to control the execution of daily, weekly and
monthly jobs (or anything with a period of n days), on systems that
don't run 24 hours a day.  When installed and configured properly,
Anacron will make sure that the commands are run at the specified
intervals as closely as machine-uptime permits.

This package is pre-configured to execute the daily jobs of the Red
Hat Linux (or Fedora) system. You should install this program if your
system isn't powered on 24 hours a day to make sure the maintenance
jobs of other Red Hat Linux (or Fedora) packages are executed each day.

Update Information:

With specific setting, which runs anacron daemon after hal, wasn't anacron running at all.
