Hello, I can't get cron working for a non-root user.
Here's the result of crontab -l for user 'nihi':
57 12 * * * /bin/date > /home/nihi/logs/testdate
The cron service is running. I have created /etc/cron.allow, which has the contents:
Additionally, there's no mention of any attempt to run the cron job in /var/log/syslog.
Root's crontab does work. Here's the result of crontab -l for root:
# m h dom mon dow command
30 23 * * * /usr/bin/mpg321 /home/nihi/audio/gwakeup.mp3
00 05 * * * /usr/bin/mpg321 /home/nihi/audio/gwakeup.mp3
which plays that particular mp3 at those particular times as expected.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10(despite my forum username).
Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks for any help!
