I use Logwatch to track what is going on on one of my Fedora 11 boxes. Since updating it from an older Fedora release I now get 2 copies of the same information to my inbox. I cannot find where this might be getting duplicated. I was assuming it might be in the cron.daily and/or cron.logwatch but I am not sure what I should be looking for with regard to a duplicate being created.

I removed the anacron rpm from my system and problem was solved!

I'd just grep -r logwatch /etc/cron* and see if there are two files talking about logwatch.

Appears to be only this one /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch – ricbax Oct 29 '09 at 15:15

Make sure there aren't two instances of cron running. The following command should only output one pid.

pgrep -l cron
