Broken 'at' command



  • Hello,
    I've noticed that 'at' command seems to be broken in pfSense builds, latest one included.
    According to the official FreeBSD Man Pages, the 'at' command is based on several components:

    IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
         Note that at is implemented through the cron(8) daemon by calling
         atrun(8) every five minutes.  This implies that the granularity of at
         might not be optimal for every deployment.  If a finer granularity is
         needed, the system crontab at /etc/crontab needs to be changed.
    

    Both atrun and the entry in /etc/crontab are missing, hence the 'at' command doesn't carry out any tasks.
    Can be restored in a CVS snapshot, so the next official RC will be fixed?
    I also wrote on the mailing-list some time ago, but I received no answer about it. I need it. ::)

    Thank you! ;)



  • atrun is there.
    /usr/libexec/atrun

    You just need to add a cron entry to your config.xml to run it.
