Here's a weird problem I have with SuSE's cron deamon:
It just doesn't run jobs, scheduled with crontab for regular (non-root) users! It works fine only for root.
My regular user is permitted to use crontab (be default), so it doesn't return errors - it installs the new crontab, but when the time comes the job does not get run.
Here's some log messages from crontab & cron:
Dec 4 22:18:04 neon crontab: (victor) BEGIN EDIT (victor)
Dec 4 22:18:13 neon crontab: (victor) REPLACE (victor)
Dec 4 22:18:13 neon crontab: (victor) END EDIT (victor)
Dec 4 22:19:01 neon /usr/sbin/cron: (victor) RELOAD (tabs/victor)
So it only reloads the user's crontab, and does not run anything.
I tried putting the same cron job in root's tab, and it worked.
Why is that? Am I doing something wrong or did I miss anything?
