RE: cron start error

Hi Mark,
I tried ver 1.7, but no problem was spotted.

Also I do not understand your second observation about
/etc/passwd and /etc/group, could you please elaborate on it?

For example I changed my group (GID) from 12385 (mkgroup_l_d)
to 547 (Power Users). The output of 'id' is now:
uid=14919(SPI) gid=547(Power Users)

I tried to install/start cron again but got the same error.

Any further helps is of course welcome ;-)
