Shutdown delay caused by anacron

Correction: Chimaera amd64 with openrc

Sometimes there is a delay during the computer shutdown waiting for anacron, range one or two mins. Both PCs affected have the package update indicator installed.

What might be the reasons? What can I do about this delay?

Re: Shutdown delay caused by anacron

Can we see the output of this command (as root):

# crontab -l

Re: Shutdown delay caused by anacron

Correction: Chimaera is affected, not Beowulf. In both my Beowulf installs anacron isn't installed. It is on both Chimaera installations.

In crontab I just find the usual @reboot script that connects my nfs shares on my file server.

The effect is sporadic.

Re: Shutdown delay caused by anacron

Check the logs and system mail. I don't use {ana,}cron in Debian so I might not be much help here (sorry).
