            Bug ID: 12011
           Summary: cronstamps directory is not created by dcron package
           Product: buildroot
           Version: 2019.02.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at buildroot.uclibc.org
          Reporter: dominique.tronche at atos.net
                CC: buildroot at uclibc.org
  Target Milestone: ---

In package dcron makefile, the per-users directory /var/spool/cron/crontabs is
created but not the timestamp directory /var/spool/cron/cronstamps.
As a consequence, the cron jobs from /etc/cron.hourly, /etc/cron.daily,... do
not work

When crond is run manually we get the error message:
no timestamp found (user root job sys-hourly)
unable to write timestamp to /var/spool/cron/cronstamps/root.sys-hourly (user
root job sys-hourly)
