Perhaps it took until after 10PM. In that case anacron would not
run weekly until after 3AM Monday. From /etc/anacrontab:
This can be the right
# the jobs will be started during the following hours only
Regardless, as has been said before, if you want a job run at
specific times, anacron is not the correct tool. Use cron.
Yes and no,
Monday is not a good day. I would like to move to Saturday
Why not a
START_DAYS_RANGE ? for the weekly stuff ?
