Script doesn't run in crontab

I made a script and when i start it from bash is works. But when cron wants to start it, it doesn't work !



/root/ <- works

crontab -e

17 * * * * /root/

doesn't work!!!
I discovered that 1 line in doesn't execute and when i put it directly in crontab is also doesn't work.

/root/mgen3.2a1/mgen -i xl0 /root/mgen3.2a1/gscript & (@bash it works)

1 * * * * /root/mgen3.2a1/mgen -i xl0 /root/mgen3.2a1/gscript & (doesn't work)

I have another Freebsd pc and on this pc it is not a problem

Ok i got It already myself:

In gscript i haven a line:

00000 1 ON PERIODIC 20.0 9216

In some strange way, crontab can't handle the byte size of 9216. If i bring it back to 8192, it works!! I don't know why, but I am glad it works again
