I looked in the forum how to install cron.I used apt-get to install it than I use the command /etc/init.d/cron start.
added for test purposes :
#run date every minute and log to test.txt
* * * * * /bin/date >> /var/log/test.txt
After a couples of minutes I looked for the test.txt file but nothing there.
Run ps -aux | grep cron
and yes the cron is running.Checked my syntax with crontab -l , and yes the cron is there.Whats wrong with my setup?I cant figure out why the cron job wont execute.Need help.
PS I run DSL 3.1 from a FlashCard.
