cron.daily, cron.weekly not working


hi there,

seems as though my cron.daily and cron.weekly files aren't working. logwatch and logrotate for example do not execute on schedule. on the contrary, users crontab jobs work properly. anyone have any ideas here? Thanks for any advice.

Thanks for the follow up. I did not realize it took a seperate rpm for the /etc/cron.* files to work. I'm old school and much prefer the regular cron file, but running servers I also need to be aware of issues that affect those that prefer the /etc/cron.* way.
