Description of problem:
I want to use the root crontab.
I set up the system.
At this time root uses bash.
Then I changed the shell to ksh.
# crontab -e
no crontab for root - using an empty one
/bin/sh: emacs: command not found
crontab: "emacs" exited with status 127
On our system there is Oracle 9iAS Version 9.0.2 installed.
But the owner is an other user.
Crontab works with other users.
The hotline is not able to reproduce this problem at thair system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.login as root
Don't set EDITOR or VISUAL to emacs if it's not installed.
