#1 I have had problems with cron 3.0pl1-99 (actually 3.0pl1-95- pl1-99
running jobs at all). None of the standard jobs (cron
daily/weekly/monthly) have ever run on those versions, here, using
/etc/crontab. I mentioned that on this list and only one other user was
seeing the same problem. I have not figured out why more are not
Are you using the same version on all of the machines?
#2 I upgraded my sid box yesterday and it has version 3.0pl1-100 now.
The _only_ way I have been able to get cron 3.0pl1-95- pl1-99, to do
anything is to use crontab -e for both root and users. You might want
to give that a try. I have not checked out the new version as of yet.
That's all I can think of David. Hope it helps, somehow.
