Question Cron.daily sends me a logrotate Kill usage message.

Hi There,
I'm running Red Hat Linux 7.3
I receive the following message in the root's email.

Subject: Cron <root@LinuxDev> run-parts /etc/cron.daily


usage: kill [ -s signal | -p ] [ -a ] pid ...
kill -l [ signal ]
usage: kill [ -s signal | -p ] [ -a ] pid ...
kill -l [ signal ]

My logrotate.conf file looks normal (see below)
This started after I restored the system from tape so it may be a permission problem. Although everything else seems to be running normally.

Any Ideas on what could cause this error?


Listing of /etc/logrotate.conf

# see "man logrotate" for details
# rotate log files weekly
# DP 27/06/2003 Changed to daily
# weekly

# keep 4 weeks worth of backlogs
# DP 27/06/2003 I think I need to change this to DAYS
# rotate 4
rotate 30

# create new (empty) log files after rotating old ones

# uncomment this if you want your log files compressed

# RPM packages drop log rotation information into this directory
include /etc/logrotate.d

# no packages own wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/wtmp {
create 0664 root utmp
rotate 1
