I got cron working as a daemon, but now it stopped working
getting the following errors in the cronevents output. Anyone
this means? 2007/11/08 11:02:18 [SYSTEM] /usr/sbin/cron: PID 1644:
(*system*) NOT REGULAR (/etc/cron.d/cron.daily)
I (jfong) owned the file. Should (*system*) own the file? Sorry, I
don't understand what it means when you say it is not a regular file?
What makes it Not Regular?
Is it a symlink?
No, they are files not links
What does 'ls -l /etc/cron.d/cron.daily' say?
