I wish to create crontab files for users on my system.
So far so good, created the file, /var/spool/cron/crontabs/<user> and in that file:
*/1 * * * * date >> /tmp/test
so that every minute the date is written in the /tmp/test.
It runs for about one hour (different everytime) and then it stopped.
When i edit the crontab file, so that the crontab.update is created, it runs again, but stops after a while.
If i enter it in the root's crontab file, it works perfect, but in the usersfile it doesn't
I can't see anything wrong with strace'ing the process.
Running slackware 10.2.0 with kernel 2.4.31, but every other box with different versions create the same problem
Thanks in advance
