    Running WHM 11.38.1.15. A couple of days ago, upcp updated/installed a handful of packages:

    [20130815.150033] [25330] Updating:
    [20130815.150033] [25330] logcheck noarch 1.3.13-6.el5 epel 116 k
    [20130815.150033] [25330] Installing for dependencies:
    [20130815.150033] [25330] liblockfile x86_64 1.08-9.el5 epel 19 k
    [20130815.150033] [25330] lockfile-progs x86_64 0.1.15-2.el5 epel 19 k
    [20130815.150033] [25330] perl-IPC-Signal noarch 1.00-2.el5 epel 7.6 k
    [20130815.150033] [25330] perl-Proc-WaitStat noarch 1.00-2.el5 epel 8.4 k
    [20130815.150033] [25330] perl-mime-construct noarch 1.11-2.el5 epel 21 k

    Subsequent to the update, the system check mails were borked. These came instead:

    Subject: Cron <logcheck@tanuki> if [ -x /usr/sbin/logcheck ]; then nice -n10 /usr/sbin/logcheck; fi
    Body: /usr/sbin/logcheck: line 100: kill: (28211) - No such process

    With the process number changing with every hour that ticked by. Being that I know just enough to be dangerous, I tried to fix access rights by:

    setfacl -m u:logcheck:r /var/log/messages
    setfacl -m u:logcheck:r /var/log/secure

    That got rid of the error messages, but now nothing comes at all. Nothing whatsoever.

    Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.

    Quick update. Now the original cron errors are back.

    No ideas, anybody?

    Thanks, Michael.

    I guess it's just one of those mysteries of open source where something that has worked perfectly well for years suddenly gets broken by an update. I seem to have fixed it, but we'll only know for sure once the next logrotate happens.

    Cheers.
