Hi there list!
1st off .im new to cygwin.
i have built some scripts to do tape backups
basically a find, then a cpio, then tar it to tape.
it runs from the command line.
it doesnt run from crontab, although from event viewer i see that cron ran.
also i put another line in crontab to run ls -l >> /usr/tmp/test every
this works just fine!.
ive lightly tapped all my scripts with chmod 777 still doesnt work!
btw its a win2k server (dc)
