Introduction

Cron daemons allow you to configure certain tasks to be run at specific times. Installing a cron daemon is a good idea because some packages may assume that you have a cron daemon installed and create jobs to update their databases with a cron daemon. There are several different loggers available to Funtoo users:

  • Fcron
  • Cronie
  • Vixie-Cron

Installation

To install the cron daemon, run the following command:

#  emerge --ask fcron

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N     ] sys-process/cronbase-0.3.2-r1
[ebuild  N     ] sys-process/fcron-3.1.2-r2  USE="mta pam readline system-crontab -debug (-selinux)" LINGUAS="-fr"
