hi!since 2 days I get kernel warning message below

kernel: application bug: crond(7820) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
kernel: (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.
this message is kernel warning log and comes while crond runs hourly

I use MDK 9.2 kernel 2.4.25pre7

I don't know what can cause this warning,but i do know,there was not such kind of warning before

Most likely its a cron problem. Did you recently update your kernel? Have you tried updating crond?
