cron daily error messages

I'm getting daily mail from cron saying:
"run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/inn-cron-expire exited with return code 1"

What is code 1?

I believe code 1 just means failure so it exited. If you wanna edit what cron jobs are run, type:

crontab -e username<--whoever your user is...

There may be a cron job (or a few) you don't even need in there.

Actually, that won't work.

They added a twist with RD and MDK cron... they setup some directories that cron checks and runs whatever scripts are in them accordingly. For example:

/etc/cron.weekly - has scripts that run weekly
/etc/cron.monthly - has scripts that run monthly

and so on and so forth.

One of the scripts in your /etc/cron.daily directory is failing for some reason. I'm not sure what "inn-cron-expire" does. Maybe you could post the contents of that script for us.

'inn' is a news transport system. Is there a possibility that 'inn' was installed then removed? If 'inn' is no longer installed on your system, go to /etc/cron-daily and remove the inn-* file. -mk
