at is broken
After thrashing back and forth in man pages and at.allow and at.deny I found
that at has a bug.
Now at that bug report there is a patch. I managed to apply the patch but one
hunk got rejected but that was for the change log so I imagine thats not
So I think I managed to patch at properly, and in man dpkg I learned that all
I need to do is dpkg -b at-3.1.8 and dpkg would kindly package all that stuff
up into a nice pretty .deb and within minutes I would be doing important
stuff like echo "ls" | at +1min
But dpkg didn't like the name of the debian directory, so I mv debian DEBIAN
and now dpkg dosn't like the format of the control file at some blank line,
so I dd that blank line, and now dpkg dosn't like depends $( it wants
alphanumeric. I'm not smart enough to figure out what I should do now. All I
know is I missed my critical ls that I wanted done at +1min.
Any ideas how I can fix at?
Should I just change my username?
