The cronie recipe should add anacron support but this functionality does not work properly due to a typo in the recipe.

XTRA_OECONF = "--enable-anacron"

should have been EXTRA_OECONF = "--enable-anacron"

The result:

CROND[6658]: (root) CMDOUT (/etc/cron.hourly/0anacron: line 17: /usr/sbin/anacron: No such file or directory)


manually correct the recipe

Steps to Reproduce

configure a wrlinux 8 RCPL23 project and try to use anacron from cronie in the deployed rootfs
