Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61508
cron pretends to run jobs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
In a fit of a desperation after various attempts to find out why cron
does not run my jobs I ended up with the following script in
echo "Subject: try this
$data" | /usr/sbin/sendmail root
It does not matter if I installed that with 'crontab -e' or by directly
editing /etc/crontab to execute every minute no mail was forthcoming.
/var/log/cron has all entries of
"CROND: (root) CMD (/usr/local/sbin/try_this)" sort every minute
but nothing happens.
After reinstalling vixie-cron from the previous beta (ostensibly the same
version) cron started to work once again and I have lots of mail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This will be fixed in the next delivery.
