I've written a little script that I want to be run by a user on a daily basis.
00 22 * * * /home/user/scripts/backup
problem is this job doesn't start unless I manually restart the cron daemon after my user has logged in. I've seen one other person having this problem on the arch forums, but it wasn't resolved as far as I could tell. Any ideas?
same here, its freaking annoying as hell.
start crond via rc.local / rc.d
only a guess
rc.local didn't work for me
This is the thread I had on this a while back if it helps anyone solve this problem. It looked like crond was trying to send mail via sendmail but godamnit, there is no sendmail program installed or available, and no config files to change it that I could see.
