Edelwaeiss,

 

Is the paint otherwise tight? Is it peeling? If it appears to be tight, you will want fill the "cracking' with a pre-mixed vinyl based patching spackle. It may take a couple coats to completely fill the cracks. After a good sanding, prime and paint with the sheen of your choice. You can either use a dedicated primer , or simply go twice around with a self-priming paint such as Behr's Premium Plus or Premium Plus Ultra. Both of these interior paints are self-priming.

 

If the paint is actually peeling, you may be forced to strip it back to are bare wood ( or metal) to get a really good finish. This is usually done with chemical strippers.

 

Hope this has helped.
