cron status


i changed passwd ang group files in /etc - some of the groups were commented
"#man:x:8" and i uncommented them ...

less /var/log/cron:
Code:
Sep 22 02:22:02 gnu crond[3556]: /usr/sbin/crond 2.3.3 dillon, started, log level 8 
Sep 22 02:39:13 gnu crond[3607]: /usr/sbin/crond 2.3.3 dillon, started, log level 8
