Description Marcin Kryczek (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-25 14:48:03 UTC
i'm not sure of it, but IMO anacron should provide virtual/cron and additionaly should be blocked by other crons

Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-07-21 21:40:05 UTC
according to the HOMEPAGE anacron isnt really a cron replacement, just a supplement ... plus the ebuild itself RDEPEND's on virtual/cron ...
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-10-08 06:01:26 UTC
some people use anacron in conjunction with a regular cron daemon

adding this patch would prevent them from doing so
