I tested the new version. It did not fix it for me. In the end, only the 'begins ' string was my issue. I mailed you another fix that fixed it for me. Hope it helps...

I have added a command to set the locale in /usr/bin/cronwhip. Please test it and let me know if it solves the problem.

By the way. After changing begins to begint (just to chheck), I received the following error: error: time data 'begint Sun Dec 1 00:07:32 2013' does not match format 'begins %a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y' so we might also have another locale problem. Looking forward to hear from you...

I'm trying to use cronwhip. In my case he reports the following error: [root@study ~]# cronwhip --show-missed error: time data 'begint Sun Dec 1 00:07:32 2013' does not match format 'begins %a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y' As you can see, he's expecting 'begins', but finds 'begint' (dutch for begins). I don't think that wtp should have dutch text in it, but this being said, I think that there might be simple solution (with regular expressions) so that you could bypass the first word. Should I debug an come up with a sollution? Or will you so that I can test? Or do you have any other idea on how to fix (like change config so that wtmp has only english texts? Please let me know...

@lockheed There's a problem with your computer's network, not with the package. The source URL is correct and active.

Can you remove dependency on sysvinit for systems running on systemd?

@ethail Done, thanks.

sysvinit should be added as a dependency. That package provides the /usr/bin/last binary.
