You have to have a system running for more than 65 minutes for it to run
the daily cron jobs.
And if this is a test system that you keep rebooting. Well.
So if I want /var/log/rpmpkgs to get updated, I have to wait until the
next day an keep the system up for a bit more than 65 minutes. Actually
a quite reasonable requirement.
Add this to my 'book': cron is your friend. Anacron is a better friend
on a desktop linux system.
And I suspect that nightly suspends will NOT trigger anacron. Though
probably some time after coming out of suspension for that day anacron
might run again. I will have to check this out on Saturday night (I
suspend this system every friday afternoon).
