A while ago I started getting error emails (from cron running the save-entropy script) the system has been setup and running for the best part of 2 years now.
I can run the script manually from the cli (as root) and no error is generated. >From all I can figure the save-entropy script is running as it should ( the /var/db/entropy/ dir has the created files and by the mod date it keeps creating new ones correctly each time) I have compared permission settings with another working machine and all seems fine. but I keep getting these emails saying there is a socket operation that is not permitted. The entire email is:- Return-Path: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> X-Original-To: operator Delivered-To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Received: by tower.home.com (Postfix, from userid 2) id 305DA8127; Thu, 17 Aug 2006 01:44:00 +0930 (CST) From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] (Cron Daemon) To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Cron <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> /usr/libexec/save-entropy X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh> X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin> X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/> X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=operator> X-Cron-Env: <USER=operator> Message-Id: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Thu, 17 Aug 2006 01:44:00 +0930 (CST) X-UIDL: ?a8!!1*N"!+Z&"!K&o"!
