Re: correct use of root crontab
you may try 0-59/5 instead of */5 for the first entry (minute entry) since, */5 may not be supported on all systems.
Any other pointers?!

I need some clarification. I am trying to launch the following script called mrtg:
it looks like:
*/5 * * * * root if [ -x /usr/bin/mrtg ] && [ -r /etc/mrtg.cfg ]; then env LANG=C /usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg.cfg 2>&1 | tee -a /va
r/log/mrtg/mrtg.log ; fi
It sits in /etc/cron.d. The problem - it does not launch. Is this the correct location. The doc is confusing.
