Hello,I'd write a shell script that did everything, then invoke that script with cron.
I would like to create an hourly cron to have the machine bring up the dialup connection, check for the new mail (with fetchmail), send any outgoing messages (with postfix) and then bring the connection down.
To make things more complicated, I would like to use this dialup session to automatically update my virus databases for clamav, f-prot, and Panda AV.
I think I could figure out how to set each of these processes in cron, but I am not sure how to tell the script that it should wait for one process to finish before it starts performing the second task. What is the best place to look for more information on that?
