Here is the problem: I'm trying to find what cron software is running on my machine, however question applies to any generic process. One way to do it is:
Find the process
ps aux |grep cron
Find the link to binary
ls -la /proc/PID_FROM_ABOVE/exe
This is my case returned
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jan 17 07:22 /proc/3363/exe -> /usr/sbin/crond
crond is just an executable. I'm interested in finding the
rpm responsible for this executable. Is there any direct way?
I was able to estimate it was vixie-cron using
rpm -qa| grep cron
However, there has to be some better way.
