Re: /etc/cron.daily/find exited with return code 1

In your /etc/passwd file, change the line for user "nobody" to have
/bin/sh as a shell instead of /dev/null, and the cron problem will go
away. This was a beta-test mistake caused by excessive security paranoia
on my part.

Of course, always make sure you understand what you are doing before you
follow someone else's instructions to change your passwd file! The next
person who gives that sort of instruction might not be so trustworthy.
