Bug#575404: crontab fail to run /etc/init.d/nscd
/etc/init.d/nscd file call start-stop-daemon
but without path. So, when called by crontab,
/etc/init.d/nscd will fail.
To reproduce the issue, add following line to root crontab
* * * * * /etc/init.d/nscd status >/tmp/nscd.log 2>&1
wait for the end of minute, and cat /tmp/nscd.log. You'll get:
Status of Name Service Cache Daemon service: /etc/init.d/nscd: line 64: start-stop-daemon: command not found
And nscd is also reported to run whenever it is stopped!
/etc/init.d/nscd script need to be corrected in writing full path
to start-stop-daemon which is /sbin/start-stop-daemon.
