Description Torkar, Richard 2001-02-14 03:11:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11smp i686; en-US; 0.8)

I want to add an entry in crontab but it is not possible.
I've tried doing this as a regular user and as su.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.crontab -e
2.edit the crontab
3.In VI do a :wq

Actual Results:  This is what I get when I have edited the crontab.
The next time I enter the crontab it still says no crontab for user toor -
using an empty one.
[toor@~]$ crontab -e
no crontab for toor - using an empty one
crontab: no changes made to crontab
In the above example I have edited the crontab and added MAILTO="".

Expected Results:  The additions made in crontab should be saved.

This is a std release of Fisher.
