Two cron questions


I know that I am not supposed to ask two questions in one post, but these two are very closely related. Apologies in advance.

1. How can I make sure that my cron daemon is loading at boot. What file do I examine?

2. What command do I put after | to make sure that the outcome is going to a log file?

the answer to ur first answer is that just give the command
/sbin/services --status-all
this command will tell u all the running daemons(services) which are presently running or are stopped by the superuser....

Is it possible that /sbin/services is called something else in slack 9.1, because it is nowhere on my system

I'm not sure slack has any of these check-running-services tools like services and chkconfig. You could check your running processes: try ps aux | grep cron and see if crond is in the list you get.

Your second question: to log the output of a command, you can redirect the output from stdout to a file, just by

command > /path/to/logfile

And in cron, everything echoed will be mailed to you.
